Growing and Growing…

May 28, 2010

As promised, albeit a couple of days late, pictures of the growing girls. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to photograph them in the brooder box as they grow, take up more space, and are far too comfortable with the camera, i.e. they, particularly Joanie, like to peck at it. Hopefully, by the end of next week they will be in their new digs, enjoying the sunshine.

Truffle, aka The Boss

Hazel, aka I want to be the boss, but little Ginger won't let me.

Joanie, aka I want to be the center of attention.

Ginger, aka I'm ALWAYS eating, but everyone is still bigger than me!

Hand fed, by my friend N. Can you say spoiled? :)

Top view for size comparisons. Clockwise from the top: Truffle, Ginger, Hazel and Joanie.

Much progress is being made on the coop, including installation of the nesting boxes and roof. Mr. CV gets many shiny gold stars. <3

    I’m fine with everything but the feet. Chicken feet = creepy. ;)

    What lovely little girls. So proud of their new feathers too. Can’t wait to see them all in the new digs.
