…Mary, Esther and Ruth. The Bible Chicks.
Yes, the kids named them (and I think it’s hysterical). They really wanted to have The Bible Chicks. Did I mention that I think that’s hysterical? They are sweet little things though and for now I’m ignoring the fact that they will grow into large, somewhat ugly creatures that poop a lot. I am focusing on the cute, on the peeping that I hear constantly and on the eggs that will be fresh and delicious. Would you like some details? (I tried to get individual pictures but I just couldn’t so for now we’ll have to deal with what I’ve got).
These little girls sleep a LOT. They sleep pretty much constantly. The funny part is that Mary belongs to Alden. Alden drools in his sleep (I had permission to write that). Mary drools in her sleep. Alden is known as our “and then….” kid and every night when I tuck him in he always has something else to tell me as I shut the door. Mary peeps when she sleeps. It’s true! She’s a sleep talker. Alden thinks she’s saying, ‘and then….”
Esther is Powell’s chick. She asserts her authority whenever she can. She also seems to poop the most so he refers to her as the juvenile deliquent. We think it’s funny that she asserts her authority and herds the other two because well, Powell is the oldest and he tends to herd his younger siblings for us.
Ruth is Kaitlynn’s chick. She eats the most and pecks at everything. Again this is funny because Kaitlynn eats the most of our 3 babes and well, pecking at everything? I’ll let you figure that part out, let’s just say it’s quite appropro.
In the end, the Bible Chicks have made quite an entrance into our family. When they’re bigger girls we’ll move them outside to their coop and wait for our eggs. For now, they live in their nursery in the garage. They obviously don’t lay eggs yet but their little peeps are heard throughout the downstairs and they make us happy.
