We've been a little busy around here....
I've been workin' on the Mr. to get chickens for several years, finally I got the green light.
I'd like to introduce you to our new "girls".
Pretty cute, huh? I took these pictures a few days after we got them.
We're not in agreement on the names yet, but being a big Dixi Chicks fan, one
of my daughters decided to named hers Martie.
They're almost 4 weeks now.
I have to tell you with zero hesitation .... They're nowhere near as cute
today as they were when I took these pictures. They're growing up at warp
speed and it's kind of freaking me out! This morning I went down stairs to see
how they were doing and I swear, they've grown into teenagers overnight!!!
By the way(because I know you're wondering about the death grip), the chick above was not hurt.
Anyway...I thought I'd give you a peek at our new feathered friends.
Any tips on raising chicks/chickens are appreciated and gladly accepted!
A little side note...
My 7 year old went to a birthday party at an art studio this weekend and here's
what she worked on. Turns out it was a complete coincidence that she got to
draw the 3 chicks.
I just love it!
Happy Thursday to all you chicks & peeps!!!
