Chickie Day

So today was an exciting day.

It was CHICKIE day.

Yes, I mean baby chickens. What did you think?

These little guys, sorry little girls, will be for eggs only. And maybe spider eaters. The hubby and I have a nice coop for them when they're big enough, but for now, they're staying in one corner of my office, peeping. LOUDLY. Who knew something that small could produce such an earsplitting noise? Ah well, the joys of animal husbandry. Here are those pics I promised.














New arrivals. A six pack of peepers, lol.




























In their new home.

















Close up.























2 Chicks on books, LOL! (This is for you, Jamie and Patricia.)


























%&@#%!














Oh so fluffy! I think my days just got a lot more interesting. ^__^ What do you think?


Edit:

So, it seems one of the six chickies has decided that I am her mother. If I put her in the box with the others, she peeps and tries to leap out (which is hilarious as she can only jump an inch and a half). But if I take her out, she settles down and is happy.

























I foresee a long night ahead, lol.

  11. awwww I've always had chickens...like since I was 5 or something...BUT since we always had HUGE gardens and yards we let them loose...suffice it to say...I was suddenly known as the chicken killer...So many have died...I gave up when I was 19(I'm 21 now) hahahaha
    Though, they definitely are fluffy and snuggling and NOISY!

    Sorry. I'm incoherent. They're so adorable. And that side-picture of The Immortal Rules is gorgeous.
    The Iron Knight is amazing, Julie. I'm flying through it, though I'm forcing myself not to go too fast.
    By the way, I made a little fan-art thing with one of those online websites. I made Ash and Puck.
    Here's Ash:

    I'll be posting the trickster on Thursday, probably. =D (I don't usually use backgrounds, but I was really tempted this time.)
    Hope you enjoy the tribute!

  21. OH MY GOSH SO CUTE!!!! I used to have pet chickens but then I had to get rid of them because I was "against city regulations." It was sad. :(

  22. When I first got my chicks they were in my room, I was so glad when they went to their little abode, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Just wait until you feel that proud moment of discovering that first egg, that was the best.
