Round em’ up…

Our baby chicks are getting big and are out in the big coop with the big girls full time now. At first we had to teach the babies to go into the coop each night. In order to do this hubby, our dog Chase, and I had to basically “herd” them in each night. After a few nights of “herding”, one night we went … Read More Round em’ up…

Adventures for Baby Chicks

Our baby chicks are growing and as you know from my last post are able to regulate their body temperature enough where they can be out in the yard on nice warm days. As you can see from the above photo when they go outside they are placed in our newly built chicken tractor so they are safe to explore and birds or other … Read More Adventures for Baby Chicks

New Baby Chicks 2015

We broke down and got some more cuteness this year in the form of 10 new baby chicks… We have been debating getting new birds, but since we lost a few more of our oldest chickens this year we decided it was time to get new ones… especially since our egg production is down. We got them when they were one day old and … Read More New Baby Chicks 2015

Chickies ‘Outside the Box’

Our chicks are three weeks old and have wings… 🙂Look at those wings… They are so cute 😉 I just love chickens growing wings.

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. I will take some pictures and show you hopefully tomorrow. Hubby texted me the dogs went crazy … Read More Welcome Home Friday

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…

Chick one… Chick two…

The girls are growing and are so fun to watch… Today they got a little log in their box and seemed to have fun exploring it. The dogs are having fun watching the chicks. Each morning they run down the stairs to see what the chicks are up to and if they see them sleeping still they seem to know to stay quiet and not … Read More Chick one… Chick two…

Quick Chick In

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

Baby Chicks Full Day 1

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. They got a fake tulip and a hard plastic/rubbery ball new dog toy that was small enough for them added to their box . They were timid at first… they approached the tulip slowly, … Read More Baby Chicks Full Day 1
