I’m in a bit of a posting lull. 2011 is continuing to kick my ass. But I don’t want to leave you hanging. I’m doing the best I can.
I will however show you the girls. Remember just 10 days ago? Ah, they were so little! Go on, check it out and then see how much they’ve changed. I posted them in the same order so it’ll be easy.
I forgot how much these little ones can eat! And drink and poop for that matter. I conveniently had forgotten the dust. They create an incredible amount of dust for such small creatures.
They are all about 3.5 weeks old except the big Black Australorp. You might remember I got 1 more a few days after the first batch came in and she was a few weeks older. So the big girl is about 5.5 weeks old.
The poor thing. It was sunny this weekend in Seattle so I let her walk a bit in the grass and then carried her to meet the old girls. One of the docile Annies (Buff Orpington) gave her a look of sheer evil, ran over and started pecking at her while I was still holding her. Hmm. I think Operation Chicken Integration could be rough.
Anyhow, if you think I’ve identified any of the chickens incorrectly let me know! If you want to know what they’ll look like full grown I’ve linked to them in the earlier chicken post. Check here!
