Chickens Part Two

We've been proud chicken owners for two weeks now. We got our first six July 28th and last four 4 August. The first ones were 8 days old when we got them and second set were 2 days old. They change so fast! It's been really neat to watch them changing- both their bodies and their behaviors. It's really a lot like watching newborns change. 

The kids love to hold the birds. 

James had lots of good helpers building the coop.

Paint goes on quick with five painters!

Chicken playtime after dinner is one of our favorite times of day now!

The way to a bird's heart is through her stomach :)

How cute is that! Our fuzzy Rhode Island Reds

My hard working, super building hubby!

Little chicks lay down and nap in the kids' hands

Our fine feathered friends needed a net on top to keep from flying around our house.
They love the perch James made for them. It's usually full!

We sure our enjoying our chickens and look forward to yummy eggs!
