Well they haven’t been accepted into the flock yet, but here they are…

We named her Annie Oakley because the kids love the musical Annie Get Your gun, and she sure looked like a hawk to me.  Little Sure Shot has a hawk-eye, so it only seemed fitting.  The question is what is she?  We don’t know what breed this is, so any guesses?

We also got this.

Meet Aretha Franklin.

No,  not this one…

 

this one! She is a sweet polish hen. We’re considering adopting the other polish from my uncle…but we’ve had the two new girls for a week now and they still aren’t very accepted by the original flock. We had to put out a second watering dish because they were literally guarding it and not letting the young two take a drink…bullies. She’s easy to catch and hold too because those feathers make it really easy to sneak up on her!
