More on the…

…Bible Chicks.  I thought it would be fun to track the little girlies each week until they are full-grown.  The kids have been doing such a fantastic job taking care of them.  Everyday, without asking, they feed, water and clean up all the poop.  I must say so far, so good.  They are still living in the garage as it’s been quite cold here this week.  A couple of nights we’ve even turned on a space heater for them in addition to their light that is on all the time.

They are still living up to their original personalities but as you can see…they’re starting to get grown-up chicken heads and spots on their wings.

They also will still huddle all together 24/7.  Oh, and did I mention that they still sleep ALL THE TIME.  They’ll even take their break from the coop out in the sunshine to just lay down and go to sleep.  One would think the lazy life of a chicken would allow enough energy reserves to allow them to stay awake longer than 10 minutes at a time.

And finally, they still make the kids just as happy as they were on the first day.

So I’m off now.  Big night.  Gotta get to soccer practice, finish the dragon float for a school project that’s due tomorrow and start Tim on some medicine!  But the sun is shining, the chicks are peeping and I still love to listen to it!
