It's been a while

Since I gave The Boss Lady reason enough to kill me.

But I was assuming that some of these chicks would not make it through the first week. Since they have, and after looking around on backyardchickens.com and My Pet Chicken, I am now thinking that the chicken coop/tractor (Cractor? Trooptor? Cootor?) that The Princess and I spent most of the morning working on, is going to be too small for 6 birds.

The worst part? It isn't even finished yet! Luckily, the birds won't be using it for several more weeks.

Congrats on all the surviving chickens! Does this mean you need to build a new coop thing or can you expand it?

Baby chicks...adorable. Until they grow up!

I've got some underwater pics and videos that I think your kids may enjoy. Have a look. It may not compare to live pet baby chicks, but still...

Yikes! Not to denigrate your carpentry skills, but I've seen bunnies at PetSmart in bigger cages!

HA HA HA!

Well, you could share some with your neighbors...or do they even know you have them?
