Chick Chick

Home sick today… I hate migraines… So today I will share one of the baby chicks with you… they always make me smile. They seem to really love their pumpkin box home. They are moving all about and trying to fly. Luckily they can’t get out of the box…. yet 😉

Grow Chick’s Grow

A couple of days ago the chicks and their wings looked like this… Now they look like this… They are growing so fast and trying to fly now so we made up their new home for them to move into today. We have a large pumpkin box we line and place shavings in. We put in a couple of logs and things for them … Read More Grow Chick’s Grow

Welcome Home Friday

The girls just keep growing and growing and their wings keep getting their big girl feathers…. I was away last night and today at a conference in Washington D.C. and when I got home the girls wings are looking like real wings, not fuzzy little wings anymore.

Angel Wings…

When you haven’t done something for a long time I think we all forget some parts of how that particular thing works or goes.  Last time we raised chicks I didn’t remember their wings growing so fast and like they are this time. Their little wings look so soft and fluffy… they look like I imagine angel’s wings to look. Angel wings of soft … Read More Angel Wings…

Chicks Growing Feathers

Our ladies are starting to get their feather tips (as I call them) I guess it’s the start of the scapular feathers, which usually come in about 3 weeks of age. You can see them well on the girl in the front of all the ladies (I think she is the photo star of them all as she seemed to like her picture being … Read More Chicks Growing Feathers

What a great start with our new chicks. They are a hoot and a half 🙂 Today we started their enrichment program and gave the girls some toys and things to explore.

Baby chick cookies

  Every major holiday I make my great-grandmother’s secret recipe iced sugar cookies. My co-workers expect them and if I don’t make them I get asked for them. My co-workers like them they say due to the soft centers and sweet, but not too sweet icing. Each year I want to try to decorate them a little different. This year I wanted to do … Read More Baby chick cookies
