Atti (Short for Attitude; the Barred Rock) and Bo Peep (Buff Orpinton) are growing and growing. It's always interesting interacting with them. Our yellow lab, Coco, is still quite fascinated with them and loves to stare at them. However, when you pick one up she backs up.
This weekend, we will be adding 2 additional baby girls ~ a Rhode Island Red and a Speckled Sussex. Blaine and I are going to split the brooder in half, so there is a chicken fencing wall between them until the older chickens get to know the younger ones (and they grow a bit) ~ and hopefully all will go smoothly when they are combined.
If you look at the pictures closely, you'll notice that Coco has her neck pulled tight toward herself when Bo Peep is on my hand, but is hanging her head over the brooder box when the chickens are on the ground... Loving my new adventure!
