Well, Minnie's chicks are growing like little flower diggin up weeds! It looks like at least 3 of the "mottleds" and more likely ALL of them are turning out to be cockerals which is what i was afraid of and of course the two brown ones obviously are. theyve got big bright orange combs developing and they are what--not even quite a month old. so at this point im thinking i have 4 out of 11 pullets. can i get a hallerooyah, how do you doya? NOT! where are the pictures? and today i sat down for a second in the adirondack chair and this tufted titmouse landed on me. well first he landed on the chair, then he got on my hat, then my shoulder, and then my foot. how bizarre.
