Outlaw chickens

We have some new pals that you should meet.


Hazel (Henry calls her Hazelnut)
Ida (renamed from Golda when Willa found out she wasn't always going to be this color)
The ladies at 2 days old.
They're in the basement under heat lights until they get their grown up feathers.

Time is a fuzzy thing.  I think it was 25 years ago to the day that my Grandpa Laws came over with a small, blue hamster box with a small cheeping being inside.  He didn't ask my parents before giving me the unusual birthday gift.  He just did it, and chuckled. 

Izzy was a cornish hen who lived in my parents' backyard and showed our beagle who was boss.  I had an outlaw chicken at age 12.  History repeats.
