On Friday I mentioned that there was a super-awesome super-secret in my backyard…

Well, the secret’s out.

And it looks a lot like chickens.

These four young ladies now hang out in my yard. Named: Eych, Five, En and One. They are Plymouth Rock chickens (aka Barred Rocks) and are absolutely beautiful–and so much fun to watch!

They are sweet gals (although you don’t want to get between them and bread) who like to cuddle together in the evenings, make cute chirpy sounds and peck around all day. And in about three months? I’ll have fresh eggs!
