How quickly they grow up!

The girls are all one year old. They're officially hens now. Ah, time flies...

I was at the feed store last week admiring the new crop of baby chicks and it was all I could do not to stuff a couple in my coat pocket and take them home. Here's a little trick that will melt your heart: walk up to the brooder at the feed store and cluck at them like a hen would. Fifty baby chicks will come running towards you, pushing their beaks through the wire and peeping, "Are you my mommy?" Posted by Picasa
