See How They Grow
My gosh these little guys are growing like weeds! Look how that little black chick is giving me the eye, so curious. Can you see their feathers starting to come in? She thinks she might be able to fly if I only would get out of the way! They think they're all that and a bag of chips.
Chris and I spent the weekend trying to finish up repairs on the hen house and we were able to get the nursery side of the house ready to receive the pullets. It's all snug and cozy with central heating and everything and should hold them for a month or so until they're ready for the wider world.
They really are getting too big for this shower stall arrangement and are creating too much dust to be in the house much longer but it's cold outside still and they don't have a mama to keep them warm - I fret about them - can you tell?
Don't worry kids, spring is coming.
Til next time,
