    YES - I couldn't agree more. She is so descriptive with everything. Love it. Still would like to know what a hooooopoooose is, though ;-)

    Yes, we miss her soooo much - but it looks like Allie is going to be worthy of being the 2nd Pekin in our family. Thank you for remembering Snow; that touched my heart.

    No kidding. Hubby showed me this on our big screen and I literally squealed. I am not a girl that squeals. :)

    is Julie going to go "BOOM!" on this?? I bet she is; I'm barely keeping myself from that same fate. :)

    Julie's reactions are one of the rare joys in life, that is for sure... I think she helps us notice all the little things that add up to DUCK... :D

    Oh, and I have a string of pics to show what hooooopoooose is, but I won't mar the spotlight of your 3 darling 'lings... :D



    Neither am I, but that one got me good... :gig



    She will fall flatter than a pancaked hooooopoooose!!!

    Would you mind telling me what type of feed you use for the 'lings and the adults?

    Purina "Start & Grow" crumbles for the 'lings + Brewer's yeast at 1 tablespoon / cup.
    Nutrena All Flock for the adults + free choice oyster shell + free choice grit (so they can eat all the treats / grasshoppers / other foraging foods they want).

    This weekend we are going to pick up some chick grit and maybe some kale just to give the lings a teeny taste of something new.

    And now for the secret you didn't notice...
    In Julie's special picture, it looks like Casey is hiding behind my thumb...

    She is really eating Latte's toe [​IMG]

    That is how these two roll. Allie is the sweetest girl in the world. She looks at everything and studies it. And gives me goo goo eyes when I go over to the brooder and sing to her. Latte and Casey are little terrors running around pecking, poking, biting everything. If they had pockets, there would be a sling-shot in both of their back pockets.
