    I just had to make a post and say that the older my girls get the more I fall in love ! They are really starting to show personality now haha they watch every move I make when I come to their brooder and one of them is my lil shadow . She follows me all around the brooder wen I'm changing feed and water and wherever I bend down and hold my hand out she"ll race over and literally knock over the others to hop up on my hand . No matter how high my hand is she jumps up there ;) it's so fun !
    I think they are getting bored w the lil branches I have in the brooder so ima upgrade them. They looooove treats and are getting sooo big! Some of them are almost all feathers already!
    Here's some pics!

    They are soooo cute. Ours are 5 weeks old. They change so fast but your right, they just get cuter and more fun the older they get! We are first timers and it's the best time ever.I never thought we would be these people. hahaaa

    I know, right? Every morning when I wake up they look scruffier than they did 8 hours before! Too funny - mine have darker feathers sticking out on their shoulders which make them look like sooo silly lol! My favorite description of them is one lady's observation that they were "um...blossoming." [​IMG]

    Yeah, I really think I've found my calling as a backyard chicken mom lol! My husband came up with the whole idea originally but then I just went nuts and ran with it. I mean, literally, my "happy place" involves watching chickens in the grass now. I've completely lost my mind and its so hard for me not to go out and get more chicks because I'm interested in all the different breeds! I hope I dont become a "chicken hoarder!!" Aaaahhh!

    Lol at your chicken hoarder comment! I think I may end up being one of those. I was searching online last night and I think I am allowed 99 layers, or up to 200 starts. I've got a good start already :)

    Ha! Chicks are a "gateway" animal. Love it! My new ambition is to have a small farm one day and raise chickens. I hate these space constraints forced on me by only having a backyard! I want goats and border collies (already got one, who is awesome btw) and all the chick breeds my little heart desires! :D
