Picture Update

It has been a busy week so I thought I would post some pictures to show what's been going on. The chicks are getting big and Kelsi and I have gotten a boat load done in the garden I will add more about that later.

The Meaters are growing fast!

Negus' is the first of the new chicks to get her comb. Looks so pretty,
doesn't she?

Mere and Gene. Same age. Very different size.

The Aerogarden is in full bloom

Julies keeping an eye on her land, She loves this spot because she can watch the chickens roam and also make sure no one is sneaking up the road.

That's it, thanks for looking.

Looks like you are getting to be quite the photographer. Love the flowers one with the blurry background. So pretty! And why are the chicks different sizes? Midget chick?

It's totally a midget chick! Her name is cashmere because she is one of the few chickens that dont get feathers of flight. Instead they get these really soft thin feathers and they are so cute when they are older little fluff balls. They are also a smaller breed. Which explains the size difference. This is what they look like as adults. And thanks for the love!

I was wondering how old Negus is? She doesn't look very old in the picture and I was thinking based off my experience with chickens that if she is getting her comb and waddles being that small then she is probably a he. Our hens usually don't get their combs and waddles until they are right about the age to start laying eggs (5 1/2-6 months). We have also hatched quite a few chicks ourselves and the roosters always start getting their combs within a month of hatching. You will have to let me know if she turns out to be a he.

The chicks are really cute! I love it when they start to feather out. Spring has come to visit you before it stopped here. Lucky you! Love the flower!

I laughed when I came up on the pic of the dog. Good picture!
