Tight Space

IMG_2196

Well, it’s time. These little girlies are getting so big that their tub-housing just isn’t going to cut it anymore.

IMG_2195

We’re working on getting their coop set up outside as quickly as possible. If the weather would just cooperate and warm up we could put them in a run outside–once we have one.

I’m afraid if we don’t hurry…

IMG_2193

they’ll go house hunting, on their own!

A Moment In The Sun

IMG_2184

Oh, these birdies of mine!

They’ve been cooped up in the silly little box, in the house…

IMG_2179

for such a long time, that we decided to take them outside for their very first taste of fresh grass…

IMG_2177

and a bit of sunshine.

IMG_2175

Oh, myyyy how they loved it. Chirping and jumping and flapping their wings at last!

IMG_2168

We’ve got to get creative really fast here. I’ve a feeling they won’t go back in their box too quietly. ¬†Fresh air and sunshine…

can’t say as I blame them.

Next stop…chicken coop.

Four Week Chickies

IMG_1937

Look how big these pretty girls are getting! Wing feathers on Goldie…

IMG_1936

and pretty back feathers on Ruby.

IMG_1939

Chickoletta’s beak is growing longer too.

IMG_1950

Little Masha’s is still small and pokey. She is turning out to be the baby of the crowd–just staying a bit smaller than the rest–but ohhh so sweet.

IMG_1956

And weird old Jiffy–still doesn’t seem to care.

I’ve been telling her they are baby bull dogs and she just has no interest in them.

She hasn’t caught on yet.

Chicky Conference

IMG_2102

We’ve been trying to hold the baby birdies as often as we can so that they are people friendly when they get big.

IMG_2107

So, while our church’s General Conference was on tv we decided to take the girls out and hold them one at a time.

IMG_2105

Rhen’s a bit partial to the Russian chickies, so he only really holds them.

IMG_2119

But look how cool their feathers are growing in. They are only a whopping 3 weeks old, but I’m amazed at how fast they are growing.

IMG_2103

Even though I was playing with this cute little sweetie, I promise I was still listening to conference.

IMG_2110

Well, most of the time.

Meeting The Kids

IMG_1964

Of course, I wasn’t the only one who was excited at taking this first step…

IMG_1966

into…ahem…farm life. ¬†Wee step, though it is.

IMG_1967

The kids have all taken turns coming over to snuggle…

IMG_1962

and hold…

IMG_1963

and stare at…

IMG_1972

and hold–some more–these pretty babies. I truly have dreamed of being this kind of Grammy.

IMG_1989

So my little sweethearts could come over and have a good, old, earthy, relaxing time with dear little animals. If I had more room–there’d be a cow and a couple of goats in the back too.

IMG_1975

This’ll do for now.

This’ll do, indeed.
