I don't have very many pictures of our birds outside yet, since our first hatch is just over seven weeks old, but I think this one turned out well.
Entry #1, His/her face and front of poof are wet from diving into leftover watermelon!
It's amazing what a little "product" can do for one's look. 😎
Entry #2, And our little Aussie is so good and gentle as he's told to be, but he wishes he could play with them so much! Love this pic of Elvis (the chicken) being "watched over" by big brother.
Entry #3, And here are the first hatch and the guineas, the only already-hatched birds we bought, going to town on some watermelon rind. Snapped this one when I tossed it to them early this morning.
The guineas were supposed to be our only birds, to help with Japanese beetle grubs, coddling moths, and any other yard/garden/fruit tree pests. Three months later, we have the 11 guineas, 7/12 Buff Orpingtons and 10/12 Barnyard mix from our first hatch, and just hatched another thirteen (9 FBCM, 1 Ameraucana, and 3 Maranaucana)... and I'm working on a 9*12' coop to add to the 8*9' playhouse we turned into a coop.
