A Girl and Her Chick

She's a chicken whisperer most certainly.
 Our little hatchling nestled down for a quiet snooze,
eyes struggling to remain open as Taylor gently petted her/him.

We think it may be a rooster since it 
is the largest and has a more prominent beak/comb.
But it's also the most gentle, perhaps a cross 
between the older rooster which is an araucana 
and one of our buff hens.
It really has the most beautiful eyes, 
large and heavily lined.

I think it has been watching tv while we are out,
Chicken Run to be exact.
It keeps looking at the rim of the brooder tub
which is a water trough we keep in the back
hall by the mud room.  One day I'm going to 
look down that hall and find a chicken walking out
to meet me!  Then it will be time for the coop.

I hope you all are having a wonder Memorial Day weekend.
It rained, hard.  Again.
So much for finishing up the garden!
There's always next weekend.

Haha, that's so cute. One of othese days all these chickens are going to turn on you. :-P What weird weather we've had. Mid week last week it felt like summer, close to 90 and very humid. Then it rained hard Thursday and Friday and Saturday morning, and then the weather dropped to 40's. It's been cold all weekend.

MANNY- this is the FIRST TIME you didn't come over as Spam. What change?

My neighbor spoke to her mom, who lives in Germany, and they got SNOW! Wow, glad we didn't. It was actually nice today.

I don't know? When I went to comment, a dialogue box opened up for me to comment into. It's only happened on your blog. Have you changed something? It's happened here again.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Manny, yes, I made it so only the com box pops up so you don't have to back into the main blog. I saw this on several other blogs and it was easier. Also, you are still coming over like a normal blogger, no more spam. Whatever your change was on your blog must have changed how Chrome sees you.

Aw, so cute. We had one escape and walk to the kitchen - twice. Ha ha ha!
