My Chicks All Grown Up
I thought today I would let you see my chicks that are all grown up now. I love the little hens, but having 4 roosters is a bit much. They are going to have to go. I am even going to take the rooster that is their father. I may keep one of the roosters that is part silkie.
He is the big red guy in the back. I think he is so pretty and I love his dark eyes. The one in front is the silkie cross and she is a little hen. I still haven't decided because as mean as my rooster is I am still pretty attached to him. He does make me laugh for all of his little pompous ways.
I have to work on my chicken pen today. I went out to feed and collect eggs and there must have been 200 sparrows that flew into the trees and I no sooner got out of the pen when poof, full of sparrows, I had not even turned my back. They were not even afraid of me.
Not to mention that many birds are so unhealthy for my chickens.
I love Saturdays!
