Close ups - Week 10

Siouxsie is starting to get the fluffy cheeks that Ameraucanas (Easter Eggers) get. She is a bit smaller than the other two and I think she might be the bottom of the pecking order. I found Blondie sitting on top of her twice now and Chrissie pecks at her.

Chrissie is really pretty with the Wyandotte's laced feathers. Can't wait to see her all grown up.

Blondie is at the top of the pecking order. She was the same size as Siouxsie for a long time and then grew really fast. Now she is bigger than Chrissie. I'll weigh them later this weekend.

Chicks get some grass sprouts

I started growing some of the pasture seed, in a container for the chicks. They destroyed most of it. I'm going to re-do the lawns with this new chicken Omega-3 pasture seed, so they have plenty to graze on.

New small chicken tractor

Built a small tractor so the chicks could enjoy the outdoors without me babysitting.

Chicks Week 4

The chicks hear something and stop peeping. Of course, Chrissie is busy taking a dust bath and doesn't even notice.

Bondie finds a leaf.
