April 30 , 2008 - Life is good.

Almost 3 months old and the livin' is easy. The Black Australorps are beginning to grow their green feathers--when the sun hits them, they glow. And their eyes have turned grown-up brown--not the blue-gray of a baby any more.

My favorite bird is a barred rock--she literally comes running to me when I go near their pen. I've learned this isn't because she likes me particularly, she's just expecting some special food which I usually have for her. She waddles as she runs and I'll have to get a video of her because a still photo doesn't do it justice.

The other girls are looking very beautiful too, but most move too quickly to get much more than a blur most of the time.

April 26 , 2008 - Free at Last.

At 11 weeks the chicks finally have their permanent outdoor pen. See the coop tab above. They are enjoying a lot more space and plenty of drying grass to wade through.

The Silver Laced Wyandotte's feather pattern is looking better and better. The Buff Orpington with one blind eye is still doing fine. One of the Barred Rocks (photo below) comes right up to greet me every time I go into the pen. It think she's expecting me to bring treats, which I usually do. The Columbian Wyandotte likes to hide in the tall weeds--see if you can find her and a Buff Orpington. The final chicken photo is of 3 scavengers.

Now the only problem the chicks have is our two dogs who love to rush up to the fence to terrorize the chickens. I think all parties concerned will adjust and get along in time. Below are the Bassets drooling over a chicken dinner they won't get to have.
