The photos are in order from oldest to newest.

As of 1/16/15, there is only one living chicken: Chickie.

Yep, I took no chicken photos in 2012, bad me.


2008

Here are some photos from 1/13/08. Chickie was up on the roost so there is just one photo of her.
Four of the chickens - on the left side in his side of the cage is Sugar. From top to bottom on the right are Poulet, Pondet, and Speckles.

Chickie - a head on view. I love this photo! I think she was hoping for some mealworms!
Three of the chickens - from top to bottom are Pondet, Poulet, and Speckles.
Four of the chickens - Sugar can be seen back in his cage. Inside are Poulet on the left and Pondet on the right. Outside of the house and closest to the camera is Speckles.

On 8/3/08, Sugar was hurt. I found him hanging upside down by his spur on the fence. He had hung there all night. When I got him down, he could barely walk. I thought he was a goner so I took a bunch of photos. He recovered though in a few days.

2009

I took these photos on 3/8/09:
Chickens - Pondet, Speckles, and Chickie, left to right
Chickens - Speckle's head on the left and Chickie (always wanting mealworms)
Chickens - Speckles (top) and Chickie
Chickens - Poulet, Sugar, and Pondet, left to right. This was the last photo of Sugar who died on 7/16/09.

On 8/16/09, Petunia was born but not seen until the next day. Here are the first photos from 8/17/09. Pondet is Petunia's mother. Speckles is Petunia's father and half brother since Pondet is Speckle's mother too.

Petunia and Pondet - in this photo, you can best see the dark stripe that Delaware chicks have behind their eye; Petunia is otherwise all yellow until the regular feathers start to come in.

Here is a video from 8/17/09 of one-day-old Petunia and her parents (mother Pondet and father/brother Speckles):

This video is from 8/18/09 of the new family eating mealworms:

Here are two nice photos of three-day-old Petunia on 8/19/09:

These photos of Petunia are from 8/24/09 at eight days old:

This photo from 8/29/09 is of Poulet indoors in a dog kennel where she is safe from the other mean chickens. You can see her bloody head.
Poulet

Here is Petunia on 9/3/09 at 18 days old. She had a deer tick stuck to the bottom of her right eye which you can see in the photos. I could not get it off that day since she struggled so much, and the tick was small. I was able to get the tick off in the morning when it was larger, full of blood. Petunia was not happy with that.

Here are some good photos from 9/5/09 when Petunia was 20 days old:

On 9/9/09, a peacock appeared on our land. In this photo of the peacock, you can see part of the chicken pen. Chickie is top of the nest box, and Speckles is on the ground. For more on peacocks, go here.

Here is Petunia on 9/13/09 at 4 weeks old. She is in the food bowl with daddy Speckles on the right and Mommy Pondet to the left.

I took these two photos on 9/20/09 of Petunia at 5 weeks old. I was positioning her for the photos with my hand because she does not want to sit still!

Here are three photos of Petunia at 8 weeks old and her parents on 10/10/09. I give them a treat each Saturday morning of bird seed when I fill the bird feeders. Petunia is in the food bowl.

I tried to get a video of Petunia on 10/18/09. As you can see, she did not stick around long! Parts of her parents can also be seen fleetingly.


2010

Petunia on 1/31/10.

Eggs on 4/18/10. Chickie and Petunia have both been laying about a green egg per day. On this day though, one of them laid an egg that was half the normal size on the right! It is shown here with the other, normal egg laid that day on the left. The smaller egg also went from the usual green to blue!

These photos of the chickens were taken on 7/3/10 while they were eating bird seed. The sun was shining such that there are a lot of shadows in the photos.
Chickens - from top to bottom are Chickie, Speckles, Pondet, and Petunia (who was molting).

2011

Chicken House and Run from afar on 5/5/11.

These photos from 5/21/11 are of My Girl (a white tailed deer doe) showing off her various facial expressions. Look closely, I accidently took photos of the rooster Speckles and one of the hens (cannot tell which one from so far away).

2014

On 5/6/14, either Chickie or Petunia laid an egg that was much smaller than normal. Here is a photo next to a normal egg of theirs.

2015

I took photos of the chickens on 1/1/15 as I knew that Petunia was going to die soon. She had crop rot which I discovered too late. You can see how her chest (crop) is distended in the photos. Petunia died 1/3/15, and Speckles died 1/15/15 at 9.5 years old. Chickie is the lone survivor. These are the last photos of Petunia and Speckles, taken on 1/1/15:

On 7/16/15, I took my last chicken photo, of Chickie. She died 9/30/15. ;-( This was her 61st photo! I sure took a lot of photos of her for my web site, more than any animal ever I think!
