Alright, it’s only taken 5 weeks to finally name all of my chickies, but I’ve never been one to rush things, people. I’ve included updated pictures to commemorate the event as well.
“Roxy” (Barred Plymouth Rock) -she’s such a poser and the friendliest of the bunch.
Cleopatra, AKA “Cleo” (Easter Egger)-she’s my spunky one with the green T-Rex feet.
Marilyn “Butterball” Monroe (Buff Orpington)-my daughter’s favorite.
“Mary Jane” (Rhode Island Red)-this picture doesn’t do her justice. She’s just beautiful.
Lady “Phoebe” (Speckled Sussex)-she’s my inquisitive gal, always curious about everything. When I’m trying to take pictures she’ll stick her face right in the camera trying to figure out what it’s all about. I have so many up close face shots of her. She’s hilarious.
As I type this they are 5 1/2 weeks old, still inside the house in their brooder. I’ve now turned off their heat lamp during the day and just have it on over night. They still seem to like it on while they sleep. The dust they kick up is amazing and I’m starting to feel ready for them to fly the coop, or brooder in this case, so I can thoroughly clean that room. Their coop is now stained and awaiting a final security latch to be put on, then we plan on setting up their run and getting everything in order for their life outside. I’ll probably miss having them so close by, but I’m excited to see how much they’ll like the outdoors with so much more space to run and play.
Will keep ya’ll posted!
