So, if you don’t have chickens I need to tell you they grow freakishly fast. They must have growing pains. I think they might give our bamboo a run for the money in the Speed Growth Department.
The chicks are now living outside in their fancy-schmancy coop and I’ll be posting a true coming out party for them as soon as the aviary-enclosure is complete.
A quick look back:
Could they have been cuter? Fluffier?
And now! They are huge!
That hair! Could it be more awesome? I think not! That is slug “gradudzicus” in her hair from a wild slug party. Don’t look up gradudzicus. It is not really a word..but it SHOULD be! Gradudzicus is an official (almost Dr.) Ladyfriend term circa 1970-something. While likely underappreciated in her smarty academic circles, is a very handy word to have at your disposal. It is used to describe any form of gunk, crap, unknown, slime, etc.
Cheep! Cheep! Cheep!
We’re waiting for the rooster verdict, but it seems Esmeralda is seeming more like a rooster daily. Bigger red wattles. Reddening face. Last night s/he was standing while all the other chicks cuddled outside. Sigh.
