Some friends of ours brought us six of the cutest chickens!!! Araucanas, the chickens that lay colored eggs. These chicks are about half grown and beginning to get the little tufts of feathers on each side of their face...
Finally!!! Jewel's chicks have learned to go in the chicken house at dusk and fly up on the roost with the other chickens. Now I have six new chicks to teach how to do this!! Last night I put the new ones in a cage inside the chicken house for the night...so they could see how it's done. Bedtime tonight should be total chaos as the old hens don't like to share the roost with new chickens. Old hens can be downright mean! I may have to take my fly swatter with me!!! :) Something to do with the "pecking order"!!!
The prettiest things in the garden this year are the sunflowers...And these volunteered and came up!!
This Cardinal stopped in just as I walked up to take a picture...
Thank you for looking in. Hope to be back soon with something new!!!
