young comets on my lap

May 15, 2016

Our young comets are very tame, thanks to the affectionate care given them by the young woman who raised them for us from chicks. (We don't have enough electricity here to run a heat lamp to keep young chicks warm. She does.)


Sometimes one will jump up in my lap.


 That's one of our leghorns looking on, from the other side of the pasture. We keep the youngsters separate from the laying hens until they're old enough to change from eating chick feed to layer feed.


Sometimes a whole bunch of them like to pile on together.


These girls are about 2 1/2 months old now. In another 2 months or so they'll start laying cute little pullet eggs, then big brown eggs when they're all grown up.
