Kids grow up so fast, grandkids grow up even faster, and I’m how old, when did that happen?!? My little chicks are growing up fast too, so fast they change by the hour!!!
Isn’t she adorable. Wylie and I spend so much time just watching them and of course I handle them quite a bit, but I don’t think they are getting any calmer. They’re fast little critters when I’m trying to catch them. They are becoming more adventurous too. Look at this little one up on their water.
Then another one flew up and perched on the feeder. Next thing you know, they will be flying out.
Mr. Farmer designing a top for the nursery to keep those young ones in!
Remember I told you about the hawk that killed two of my hens? We met yesterday with the man who put the fence up for the chicken run and came up with a plan to cover the whole area. They are hopefully going to be able to start that project next week. I’m so glad as that will really protect my flock. Look what was in the chicken run today when Mr. Farmer came home today. He was able to snap this photo of a Cooper’s hawk, not the Red Tail that got the hens, but we definitely have a hawk problem.
Look closely over the back of the tin rooster, he’s sitting in the chicken run. The hens are in a temporary pen, so they are protected from him.
