Thirty-eight little things arrived in the mail this morning.
I wasn’t expecting them until the week of May 5th, so I really wasn’t planning on them being here until about Tuesday. I was going to spend this weekend doing a thorough cleaning of their pen and getting everything ready. You can see the dust on the hexagon shapes of the chicken wire.
It’s a good thing I had already picked up the starter feed. (Yes, it’s in a banana boat)
This is the only one who can say, “Look! I have feathers on my feet!”
Of course, none of this answers the age-old question, “Which came first? The chicken or the egg? She didn’t even mind modeling for me.
It’s hard to believe that twenty-four hours before this picture, that cute little chick was tucked inside an egg that size. I wasn’t happy with how the picture turned out, so I tried again with a different model.
I was having a hard time with the glare on the glass.
This chick really didn’t like modeling, so we only got a couple before I returned her to her friends. I might have to try again. I wonder if I have a fancy teacup buried somewhere.
