Quote:They were around 12 1/2 weeks their first dip. They are 14 weeks old today.
Quote:Thanks Lynn. ✿◠‿◠
Ah well, I can't make my chickens try to swim now - the kiddie pool's been drained. Next time it is filled, though - maybe after one or two uses in the water. I don't want to waste all that water, of course.
Quote:And i do believe that is the stink eye you are receiving, poor guy.
Definite stink eye, Pokster!! That rooster means it too!! lol!!
This is soooo fantastic! Please, please enter your swimming beauties in the BYC calendar contest! Amazing shots! You are a gifted photographer. And- congrats on Pic of the week. The cutest pic ever!
Quote:Awwww. Bummer. Just make sure that when you finally do get the chance to try it, that you come back and show me how it went. ❀◕ ‿ ◕
I'll say those are the best pics I think I have ever seen. I can't even get mine to stand in the kiddie pool or a shallow pan of water.
Quote:Thanks Melissa! I have considered entering it on the calendar. I probably will. Actually, there are several pictures that I'd like to enter. It's just a matter of narrowing them down. ❀◕ ‿ ◕❀
Quote:Thanks Patty. And by the way...mine didn't have a choice. I put them in and at first they were not happy. After a few tries though, they relaxed and began to like it. I'm sure in the heat you're experiencing down in Austin, your babies would REALLY benefit from a dip in the kitty pool! Chicken are always afraid of something new. It cracks me up. But once they become "familiar", that fear goes away. If I were you, I'd work on the hen at the top of the pecking order. Once she "gets it", the other will follow her lead.
OMG, I have to try that with my girls!
