We have a chicken shortage! I headed to Portage Bay Grange here in Seattle to resolve this.
Sadly I don’t have the free time to raise really young chicks like these sleeping ones.
I caught this one giving me THE BEADY EYE.
They had a Easter Egger/Ameraucana so we grabbed her and a Partridge Wyandotte.
Unfortunately I didn’t think about setting up the second coop in advance, so they had to hang out in the dog carrier for a while.
Hours and hours of setup time later, they’re in the second coop to acclimate to their new surroundings and give the other chickens a chance to get used to them.
Sadly it appears that Business Chicken 2.0 is being pecked around her tail feathers by the yet to be unnamed one. Conveniently Betsy is a master of sewing in addition to a friend to all chicken, so she whipped up a little cape to protect her backside until it heals.
