The Mysterious Mystery Chick, Frida

You may remember that we received a complimentary mystery chick when we ordered our chickens.  Thanks to my blogging friend, Crow, we have named her Frida.  Here is an updated picture:
 She really has a long neck, doesn't she?  When I posted her 'newborn' picture, several people commented that they thought she might be an Americauna.  We actually have one Americauna hen, named Natasha, so I've posted a picture of her for comparison:
 What do you think?  Yes?  No?  Maybe we accidentally got sent a turkey?  (ha ha)
I guess time will tell.

Meanwhile, the Cornish Roc Xs and Freedom Rangers got separated into their new homes.
Here are the selected Cornish Rocs in their 'transportation box' - ready to be dragged across the yard to their new coop.
Yes, we let our children outside in pjs.  All the time, folks, all the time.  Can you stand it?

Jill said...

I don't think I love anything more then a little one in their pj's outside, in the car, on my lap, well...anywhere!

I bet the chickens are lots of work, but they certainly look fun! Pjs? We live in them!

Texan said...

Are we not suppose to go outside in our sleep wear? OOPS Oh well to late, I am not changing my ways at this age LOL.

Samantha said...

I do lots of stuff in my PJs..and the boys actually look adorable in theirs!

Amish Stories said...

Ha we homeschool in pjs! Why not? :) Your mystery hen reminds me of the ugly duckling story...swan? lol

TexWisGirl said...

heck, why bother with the pjs at all!

Chris said...

You've not taken delivery of an Ostrich by mistake have you Lisa?

Could be a whole new venture...

Sandra Orchard said...

Doesn't everybody go outside in PJs? LOL Do you let your kids push their pet chickens around in wheelbarrows and sit at the campfire with them? That's what our kids used to love to do. :)

Valerie said...

Amy used to run around outside in her PJ's all the time-and she used to run around barefoot in the snow, too. It's what makes for great childhood memories:)

I don't know much about birds-but your mystery chick does look like a turkey. If so, what would happen come November...? ;)

Mary said...

Yeah no help here... I don't know anything about chickens! I just wanted to comment because they're all so cute. :)

Sandy said...

I think it is so hard to tell chicken breeds when they are young. I do tend to agree with the person that said it looks like a turkey though.

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

I agree with Valerie--maybe Frida could be a turkey. Sounds like perfect timing for Thanksgiving, but I don't know if I would enjoy eating a turkey that I'd named!

Maybe it would depend on how sweet Frida was. :)

And we always live in PJs!

Dawn said...

I love it! Sweet:)
And if it IS Turkey....you can invite us all over come Thanksgiving;D

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

We go out in our jammies, too.
I am so seriously considering chickens here.

Gone Country said...

Mystery chick indeed! I'm curious to see what you'll end up with!

Good for you letting the kids play in their PJ's! They're having fun!

Sonya Heilmann said...

Maybe it IS a turkey. I can't wait til you post a photo of her when she's bigger!

(Florida) Girl said...

She looks like a turkey to me. Shows you how much I know.

An Irish Italian Blessing said...

Frida is CUTE!!!! And, I totally let my kids wear PJ's outside, haa, alll the time.

Sweet Virginia Breeze said...

I agree with those who think your mystery chick looks like a turkey.

My Journey With Candida said...

You know, you could have a turkey there, but like you said... time will tell.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Hey, doing chores outside in your "loungewear" is definitely underrated. Pierce is so cute!! :)

Myya said...

How fun that it might be a Turkey... Bummer it woln't be fat enough for Thanksgiving. Did I just say that outloud? LOL

My kids go outside & play in their jammies all the time. They are kids, they should play whenever the feeling hits jammies or not :)

Farmchick said...

My daughter loves to ride her bike in her pj's and she is now ten years old. Gotta love living in the country! lol We received a mystery chick once that turned out to be a Polish Chicken. Always interesting.

Shell said...

Nothing wrong with going outside in your pjs!

Chatty Crone said...

You are right - time will tell.

And I stay in my PJ's too sometimes!

Angela said...

What an awkward looking little hen! I hope she ends up looking like Natasha! She is beautiful!

My son thinks he should be in his pj's all the time! lol He even wears them out in public when I let him get by with it. As soon as he comes home from school he changes into his pj's! lol It isn't something that I made him do either. He just likes being in his pj's.

GardenofDaisies said...

I can't think of anymore delightful than running around outside in pj's. (and not having neighbors close enough to see me and have me committed.) the chicken transport house looks awesome!
PS-E-mail me your address. I was serious about sending you something for being my 400th follower!

Granny Annie said...

My granddaughter ran out in her pajamas this last visit and her mother quickly got onto her for doing so. Our granddaughter responded, "Granny Annie goes out in her PJs". Yep I do:)

About Frida, could she be a Turken. Here's a link. http://www.fugly.com/pictures/9892/Turken.html
