morning-chick Good Morning!

This is my new screen saver – Rosey!  She is growing right along and definitely has a different personality than the other two chicks;  I wonder if chicks have unique personalities like people do … we will see.

They have become quite a bit more chirpy the past few days and at times they have stare downs with each other.  They will even chase or run at each other – time for more room maybe.  This weekend we  (we I will be helping) and taking notes and pictures for a blog post – “The Coop that Stan built” !

The seedlings are growing right along also …

You can see a list of everything I hope to grow this year and I am still trying to figure out what to plant at which location.  I did cut my first batch of parsley yesterday and added some to my salad – what a fresh zippy flavor!

And yes, the crocus are blooming !

Well I have had these baby chicks for 1 week now and OMG they grow fast!  It’s like you go to sleep and wake up the next morning and they grew up!  Ok… now you have to understand I have never had chicks before so I am not a knowledgeable farmer on figuring them out – but I will tell you something they ARE fascinating!  Like this morning ,,, I had the camera (since it’s been a week) and Rosey was doing this –Rosey dancing?  I think she was doing the dust bath but I am not sure. 

I think we  have 2 roosters (Red and Rusty) and one hen Rosey.  So next weekend when we head down south I have on my agenda to purchase another hen – only because it’s the thing to do, I think.  I know, I know   15 -25 hens to 1 rooster but heck I can’t do that many and Rosey doesn’t need 2 roosters bugging her.  So if I try to even it out it may work and actually I am still not real sure who is who yet.

Finding the roost  Here Rosey discovered the roost and sat there.  I will tell  you this about baby chicks – they are simple, and a joy to watch … very skittish though, but ya know what !  They are happy critters!!  We should all strive to be so simple and happy…(but then again that can all change by next week or even tomorrow morning whenever this pecking order thing kicks in)

But for now I have Happy Chicks and I am Happy!
