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!
