They grow so fast! It’s their 8 week birthday and they really look and sound like full grown chickens! Just a little smaller. They aren’t easy to catch and hold anymore.
Ahhh memories. I remember the first time we opened the box when we got them in the mail. You can see the video: Tiny soft fuzzballs. Little peeps….little poops. No having to run outside to see what’s going on. Now that they are big enough to be in the coop it’s just not the same.
But I guess there are good things. The basement doesn’t smell. I’m not having to deal with pasty butt anymore.
Ok….they are more fun to play with when they’re older, even if it means bigger pecks and bigger bags of feed to buy.
