The snowing is melting!! It has REALLY warmed up this past week and I'm loving all of it but the mud. It's now that time of year I have to put it into 4-wheel drive to get in and out of the drive way.
We ordered 25 more chicks last week.
They are all doing well so far....only lost 2 so that is good. The kids love to check on them everyday and hold them.
The chickens don't venture out much when there is a lot of snow on the ground but all this 50 and 60 degree weather has really put a spring in their step. While out taking pics of the chickens I realized I haven't introduced you to our new boys....Mr. Big and Aiden. A friend of my mom's talked us into taking 2 of her roosters off her hands. They had names when they arrived but soon I thought they needed new ones.
After watching them for a couple of days I decided the bigger rooster should be called Mr. Big......
and the other one should be called Aiden. Ya know...from Sex & the City. They both seem to fight over the blond chicken, Sara, so I thought these names were PERFECT.
I was worried about having roosters around the place. I have heard horror stories......I Despise a Floggin' Rooster!
There is something comforting in hearing them crow throughout the day. Since we keep them locked up at night I don't have to hear them till The Hunter get's up and lets them out in the morning.
The seem to really watch over their girls....and I like that.
