Tiny Velociraptor Farm!

  1. slagartist
    We have six new chicks, our family's first Seattle flock! One each of an Easter Egger, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, White Rock, Ancona, and Speckled Sussex. Not quite coop-ready, these 3-4 week old fuzzy torpedoes enjoy roosting on the edge of their nursery, fluttering from one arm of their human hen to another, and tormenting said human's poor dog.

    Orp is on to you, dog.

    Dog is wary of tiny dinosaurs.

    But outside, takes over as flock sentinel and makes sure nobody gets lost!

    Ancona chick is pretty and knows it.

    Ancona enjoys riding dog. Dog does not enjoy, but can't do much about it.

    Dog is very watchful and protective of the flock outside <3

    ...even if inside, they peck at his butt.

    That's so cute! It took a little training both ways, but my little dog is also good friends with my pullets.

    Priceless! I used to wonder what people meant by 'chickenTV' - that was before I became addicted. Post lots' more pix. pls!

    Thank you! I am amazed at how much they grow everyday, new feathers popping up all the time! They're so naughty and cute!
    As for the dog, he's a good boy. He was very, very anxious/hyper the first two days, but with "chicken time" training every day, he's come to fear/adore them. I've been training dogs for a long time, and he's actually the best one I've had, so I'm confident he's going to end up the mother hen :)

    This is great! Will be fun to watch them grow with you. Hope the dog stays so patient! :) Very cute.
