For the past few years, I’ve talked about my chickens. Over that time, I’ve lost most of them for one reason or another, and now I’m down to one old fat hen that has no more eggs to lay. She will go to a good home for their stewpot soon.
In the meantime, I’ve had fun watching my daughter, Inga, with her new chicks. As you can see from the photo on the top, she created quite a home for them.
Her chicks have not started laying yet, but I’ve sent her a couple fake eggs to put in the nesting box so her girls will know where to go when it’s time.
Just before she picked up her new chicks, Inga’s office mates threw a “baby shower” for her. . .
. . . complete with all sorts of chicken gifts!
And the babies finally arrived!
Don’t our children grow up way too fast? Here they are at three weeks of age.
Every coop needs a fancy front door . . .
. . . and a pretty way to keep them inside and warm.
When the door is open, they are curious to see what Inga is doing – or maybe they wonder when she’ll feed them.
I can hardly wait to get more chickies of my own!
A hui hou!
