Growing and Laying

Our baby chicks aren’t so babyish anymore… sad face 😦

Chicks2

Two of our Columbian Rock Crosses have started laying (but not the one pictured below)…

And maybe even one of my New Hampshire….

Their eggs have been so little and cute 🙂 No yokes in them at first, but now they are getting a little bigger so we’ll see when I crack open a bigger one…

It has been very interesting to see these chickens integrate into the old flock and find their place among the other ladies. Its also fun to hear the difference in their clucking and little noises from the other types of chickens we have. I sat outside the last couple of nights since its been cooler, and just watched and listened to them…. Loving our adventures in chicken land 🙂

Beauty Filled Day

Our little piece of God’s land had some nice weather today and earlier this week. It was nice enough that the dogs laid in the yard and not in the shade of the porch.

Baxter kept trying not to look at me when I was walking around checking on the chickens and snapping shots of him.

Bax laying

He used to pose for me, but anymore he seems to just tolerate my photo obsession. some days though he will still pose and look handsome for me 😉

Baxter laying

Usually Chase helps me with the chickens, but today Baxter watched them for me while I checked out their coop and collected eggs.

Bax and chicks

I am going back to work Monday after almost three months off after my surgery and complications. I have mixed feeling because I have loved being home and being a homemaker. Everything is so organized and clean, just the way I like it. But I know I have to go back 😦 Maybe some day God will bless us with a baby and I can stay home with them.

Chase

But until then my boys are my babies and I love them 🙂
