Friday the 13th

Well, it appears that Friday the 13th has struck Blogger today.  Not that I had a burning post I wanted to put up here.  I have been very busy this week with the chickens and commuting to the big city twice.  We have a routine figured out, we are getting really good at wrangling them at night (our bedtime is before theirs apparently), and the weather has been so rainy and gray I am wondering if someone picked us up in the middle of the night and now we are really in Seattle!

The chickens are growing at an unbelievable rate...I swear their feathers are an inch longer and they are an inch or two taller every morning!  They finally figured out how to use the roosts - they look so cute on them all feathers and no feet :-)  And we have determined they LOVE grass.  We rip a handful out and tear it into smaller pieces, then dump it inside the run and they go nuts for it!

I love the sounds they make too...these happy little chirpy sounds, all the time.  Every once in a while, someone attempts a "cluck", but mostly they just chirp away - I guess they like their new home :-)

Sounds like your chickens are doing very well indeed. It's so much fun to watch them grow! Before you know it, you'll have eggs.

Thanks Leigh - we are looking forward to those home grown omelets :-)
