‘Momiji’ chickens are here…

Whooopeeee… finally the birds came…
Today, we were very excited to be receiving two chickens…
A well-known chicken-layer company brought the two birds to our home…
The President of the company himself, no less…

The birds are what he called, locally bred ‘Momiji’ aka ‘Autumn leaves’…
Good layers they are, according to him…

Having been born on 11th September (of all dates…) 2012, they are about 8 months old…
Just about the right age for laying eggs, apparently…

PS: Actually, rare seldom as it is, all pictures this time were taken by my missus…

    Hi Lrong, why are they rare? I once bought 3 black Japanese chickens. They are small with thick feathers and have feathers also on the legs. They always go together and the nephew and niece were very small then and love them so much. However, they have short lives but they left their genes with our native chickens. Ours become much smaller, shorter and hairy legs and susceptible to disease. But they are beautiful.

      Andrea… wrong use of terminology on my part… the ‘rare’ actually refers to the rareness of my missus taking pictures that end up in my blogs… this time, I was busy setting up the chicken coop and she was observing and hence, the pictures…

    I’m just as excited to see them. Brings back all the memories of my childhood. I wish I have space to rear chickens again!

      Hi Liz… we are only into our fourth day with the chickens and we are quite pleased to be ‘entertained’ by their behavioral patterns…. 🙂
