The chicks are growing quickly! They no longer resemble little balls of fluff, but have developed real wings and tail feathers. They eat an amazing amount of organic crumble feed. We have 4 buff orpingtons, 4 ameraucanas, 2 barred rock, and 2 rhode island reds. All are adorable. When raising chickens a couple years ago overseas, we unintentionally purchased a young rooster then had to change her/his name from Bonnie to Bonnie Prince Charlie. He is still ruling the roost at my friend’s farm in Portugal. I’m hoping all 12 of these little chickies are female since the goal is eggs, and roos can be aggressive. We won’t know for sure for a few months when they either lay or crow!
One little chick resembles a baby owl so much that we may have to name her Cindy Lou Whooooo. 🙂

Hi March- Love your blog! Wondering if the former owner of your property left you a map or key of what was planted where….. If not, it must be like The Secret Garden coming back to life! Looking forward to following the unfolding of many mysterious blooms…..
Hey, glad you found me! The Naylors who built Coppertop did leave me a limited map of the gardens, at my request. I consider it to be more of a treasure map, since it’s not very detailed and is more in list format than exactly what is planted exactly where. There will be an element of surprise for many months to come.
