Aw, sorry you couldn't be outside yesterday! :/ It's all rainy and overcast again today, so it looks like I'll be stuck inside today. Which I suppose isn't too big of a deal because when I was out there to get the chickens set up this morning, the mosquitoes were ridiculous! Crashie and his parents are butterscotch call ducks. And speaking of Crash, exactly one month ago today was when he came into the world! I have a bunch of pictures this morning to share, mostly of him being completely adorable, as if that's any surprise. He will not pose with the Easter chick anymore, so here's the best I could do. Such a nibbler! He's starting to get stripes on his face like his mom's. The innocent eyes, as he flings water out into the fresh shavings. I think this is the accumulation of his awkwardness for the week. He looks so grumpy in this picture! This one turned out better. Just needed my hand there for support, I guess! Seriously, what awkward phase? His little foot in my hand. Ah, he's just too precious! All of my birds are being especially loveable lately. My sweet Dorkings and I had a chat yesterday, with lots of cuddles, of course. Rangi and Roha, my Ancona and Exchequer Leghorn, are being sweeties and giving me lots of attention. And mon amour de poule, Frou-Frou, was being super snuggleable last night. She just sat down with me in the coop, stretched her neck out over my hand and soaked in all the love I would give her. And I gave Reuben some love this morning whether he wanted it or not, after which he had to stand all tall and manly and pretend that didn't happen. Ah, who could ask for more? Oh, and as for the broodies, we still have Margaret hanging in there. So she got hugs this morning, too, because I could.
