We did it....we finally gave in and got some chicks! And oh. my. goodness...I can't get over the cuteness. All the kids are just smitten and loooove the chickies to death.
Lucy has earned the name "the chicken strangler" because she loves them a little too much and tries to hug them and just about squeezes their tiny heads off. Literally. So we have to protect the babies from her exuberant love and are hoping she masters petting them gently with her finger very soon!
The kiddos picked some pretty great names for the chickies...this here above is Birdie (Levi's pick) and below is Agnes.
Besides Birdie and Agnes, we have Sally, Henrietta, Penelope, Winifred, and Miss Bennett. We try our best to remember how to tell them apart!
I have so enjoyed watching my littles adoring their tiny chicks. So sweet and special.
And since we're on the subject of chicks, I thought you might enjoy some pics of my other chicks, you know, the unfeathered ones. But these are mostly of my littlest chica..a.k.a. the resident chicken strangler.
She's a mess. And we LOVE her dearly. Miss Lucy is 16 months now and is excellent at communicating and full of her own quirky attitude. She fills our lives with sunshine. And drama.
I snapped a few pics after church on Sunday since it rained and was yucky on Easter. They were all hungry and not very delighted with pictures, so I only got a few. Oh well.
Alright, so do any of you have baby chicks or chickens? Any funny chick stories to share?
