Meet Edgar

 We have a new addition to the coop. Edgar is an Americauna Rooster. We put him in the run while the hens were free ranging. They didnt pay each other any mind! So soon afterwards we put the hens in the coop and they checked each other out. Edgar seemed a little intimidated by our head hen (a Rhode Island Red) but they seemed to do pretty well together.
Our two Americauna hens seemed more interested in Edgar than the others. I found this interesting. I hope Edgar will become protective over the girls and not allow our Dachshund to eat anymore chickens!  I also hope we can eventually watch some baby chicks hatch! 

We now have 8 hens, 1 rooster and 4 chicks.   three chicks (one the the chicks died)
