The girls, all grown up

Well, I think I can say that my chickens are all fully mature now, seven months after we brought home the little fluffballs from the Issaquah Grange. All three are producing at least an egg every other day, and the egg bin in the refrigerator is regularly full of a dozen eggs at all times.

Here's a photo of the three. Gertrude the bantie is in front, with Wilma just behind her and blue-egg-laying Mathilda in the back. I must say, it's hard to take pictures of chickens -- their bodies move in a herky-jerky motion, and it's hard to get them to stand still.
