Eek, little yetis!! I love it!
Here are the little yetis today, 6 weeks old! I took some comb shots, too, while I was at it. You can really tell the two for-sure boys in the crowd now!
If you couldn't tell by Winter's picture above, they started out outside when I began taking pictures. Mama takes them outside almost immediately when I open the door, and they come and go as they please now!
Here they are, foraging!
Benjamin in the grass.
I adore his eyes!
And his fluffy bum, too!
Marka giving me looks from a branch behind Mama Margaret:
They must have thought I was herding them along or something, though, because they soon went back inside. Or maybe it was just supper time?
Here's Marka being a cutie.
I love how creamy Marka's feathers are coming in, almost like Margaret's but not quite.
Winter would like the world to know that he is extremely fierce, and don't you forget it!
Mama hopped out the door behind me, but the babies weren't sure if they could go. These were the looks I was getting as a result. Bennie's right in front here, with his lovely eyes.
And finally, I just thought this was too stinking cute!
Benjamin and his daddy, Reuben, posing together! Look at this little guy!!
In other flock news, Crashie laid a 'real' egg again, finally!
She actually was not in distress about it, either! She chirped at me and was building a nest when I woke up, and had laid it and moved on by the time I got home this afternoon. Yay, Crash!!
It looks like the crappy shade cover may be able to be put to rest for good sooner than expected, with something that'll bridge the gap between now and this summer's construction projects... Stay tuned on all of that.
And we are within a month of the hatchery chicks arriving!
I believe the actual day count is now 25 days!! Can't wait!
