So, last Saturday, we drove out to Agoura Feed in Agoura Hills, just north of Los Angeles, and got two little babies. Here they are: Peggy and Tina.
Peggy, the yellow and brown one, is either a Arucana or Ameraucana, although probably not a pure bred version of either one. These chickens are also known as Easter Eggers, because they lay light blue or green eggs. She's such a pretty chick, with stripes down her back, black "eyeliner" and fluffy cheeks. Dakota thinks she looks like a cartoon character. Eventually, I think those fluffy cheeks will grow into a feather "beard." For now, they are just extremely cute.
Tina is a black sex-link. Right now, she's basically all black. But she may end up with some gold feathers as well. She has a tiny pink comb, and her legs are black and pink. Not sure how that'll all turn out when she's older. She'll lay brown eggs when she grows up, and should be around the same size as Lisa.
The chicks really seem happy together. They snuggle when they sleep and spend a lot of time chasing each other around. And, of course, they're both peeping like crazy.
