These little ladies are growing so fast! We brought them home two weeks ago and they are making their way into our hearts pretty quickly! It’s fun to watch the kids interact with them. And the chicks are becoming less jumpy around the kids! Every time you put your hand into the box, you will most likely bring back a chicken! They like to perch on your finger. I already feel like they’ve taken to me as their “mama” (since I am the one mostly taking care of them ; )
We found a free chicken run that needs some TLC but hey, it was free!
Now all we have to get is a hen house for them to roost in at night. We are hoping to find something affordable on-line but might end up constructing something ourselves…. but we still have some time.
We took them on their first backyard excursion and they loved it!
Ez, the chicken whisperer.
The chickens have moved out of the house (yeah!) and are living in a giant dog crate in the carport. The kitchen was getting kinda stinky ; ) And I think we are all allergic to chickens or pine shavings or something… quite a few colds are a brewing coincidentally. Maybe it’s just the wonderful pollinated spring air…or it’s the chickens!
So far it’s been really fun to have chickens! And I just have to keep thinking it’s fun!
