Welcome to our 3 new chicks we got yesterday from High View Farm in Driftwood. We took a nice (and hot, no air conditioner in the VW bus) drive out to Dripping Springs then down HWY 12 to the farm. What a beautiful place. It’s for sale too. 73 acres. They are moving to Blanco for more land. They have horses, dairy goats, rabbits and lots of chickens - oh and some awesome turkeys.

She specializes in rare chicken breeds. Her favorite is the Partridge Brahmas. THEY ARE HUGE. and stately and beautiful. I had never seen a chicken like that. Pretty amazing.

Here’s the Breeds and names of our new girls. :-)

Splash Isbar (pronounced ICE-BAR)

This breed was introduced by a Catholic monk from Sweden. She will lay green eggs.

——- Her name is Isabelle. Isabelle the Isbar.
