Are they not just the cutest? We got 7 baby chicks this week. Rhode Island Reds. We decided on 6 Reds. Then we would 6 different ones this week in their next shipment. But there were 7 at the feed store. I couldn't buy 6 and leave one to be all alone could I?... so we have 7 :0) they are so cute, we have had them three days and they are already growing like crazy! and their wings have started growing their feathers. They are much sweeter than the Guineas... sorry but they are, the Guineas spook and freak out too often. These little chicks run around and when you catch them they do calm down and let you hold them. Can't wait to watch them grow up. :0)
Speaking of growing up... This is Hank and his Posse of young boys.
All the little girls we want to sell are now gone. We kept three girls out of this group. But we really need to sell boys, but only to homes we know will love them. For now Hank is happy with them, and being their leader
This one is funny... They love the cool water as the buckets are being filled...
This is the little girls pen, and they were begin calm and lined up for their turn. Well as I snapped they were calm... then things got a little wild. LOL
Now the boys, we have issues. The guys as soon as the buckets get less than 1/2 full of water they like to turn them over and then carry the buckets off. Heck they all love to do that not just the little boys.
Now it is funny to watch them carry the buckets from the rope handles, or edges of the buckets. But even funnier when they flip it upside down. Once it is upside down they have nothing to grab it by. But that doesn't stop them from trying! Pavo was even trying to kick the bucket to help. I have no clue what they think they are biting on the top to pick it up. But it was funny to watch. They were making lots of noise kicking at the bucket and snorting....
Not to far away is the Cat Condo... And Samantha "Sam" was watching -
I can only imagine the thoughts running through her head. "Dumb boys... what is the point of biting it and kicking that bucket... way to much energy for nothing. Not like it is a bug, a butterfly, mouse or leaf blowing across the pen" Yes those are things Sam like to chase and move at any speed for.
There was a fraction of a split second that I caught Tuco sitting still -
So what do you have planned for the weekend? Work Work Work here.. Farm life never takes a break! And it is wonderful isn't it.
