Adventures in Chickdom

Pictures of the "big" chicks @ 5 weeks old:
Willamina. My favorite. Love her markings and her personality.

Sweet Pea. The leader.

Penguin. She's nice.

Baby is the small black one. All her pictures came out blurry except for this one. And the second one is an action shot of her dusting herself :)

Fluffy. She kinda gives the stank eye.

Whitney loves the chicks and the chicks aren't shy. It's hard to tell but in the second picture they've all jumped up on my leg to check the camera out.


Having chicks has been so much fun.
Some highlights:
One day Sweet Pea wouldn't go to my arm (I think it is most likely a boy) and Leah said, "I think he knows you'll probably eat him."

Grayson was looking at Penguin and then told me "I stared at his face and she stared at my face." That's true love right there ;)

I made them a make-shift pen to put them on the grass. I felt so bad keeping them in the bathroom all day. Well, the kids were out hanging with them and the sprinklers turned on! The chicks and Leah were drenched before I got them turned off, oops. Leah did towel dry them off though, because they are that spoiled :)

I guess I'm the worse friend who rarely blog hops anymore and had no idea you have chickens! We've talkedabout getting some, but we need a real backyard for that. Danny's brother Jeff just got some too, but wow I feel like you know your chickens better than I know my own kids! Heehee! See you soon and thanks again for the noodles, you rock!

"I think he knows you'll probably eat him" gave me the best laugh all day! How funny!!
