Spring part 2… the chickies!  So, we decided we wanted some more chickens; mostly because we wanted more eggs, but also to try a few new breeds.  We decided on 5 more chicks bringing our grand total to 10.  (Now it’s time to get to building a bigger coop!)

As usual, the girls are having a blast with the chicks.  And, so am I this time.  Not that I didn’t enjoy the chicks the first time around… but I can’t say I handled them before.  I’ve not only overcome my slight fear of these birds, but grown quite fond of the.  One in particular, little Bethany, I can’t resist holding throughout the day!

Sierra is doing remarkably well with the chickies.  No squished chicks; that’s a good thing!

Natalie’s chick is “Gilfie,” from her book Guardians of Ga’Hoole.  I just love that!
