Postcards and Peepers

So....,Chicken Math {^-^} Adding a few new babies to my flock.  I am just keeping 3 of these cuties. I'm bringing the other 3 to my mom tonight. I thought I knew which ones I was saving for me, but then my daughter seen them and called dibs on a few. So I've had to slightly alter the selection of who goes to moms.  We're keeping the soot black on at the far end (because she looks like our other chicken Wednesday). • Mom gets the pretty barred rock. I'm keeping the golden-red one & the tiny peach one.
