The Chicklets have grown and have finally become - pullets. AND they have moved on out to a deluxe coop in the orchard. Now they have a place to rome and hunt little buggies on the floor(ants). Alphie our ever present first born still rules the coop and she takes her place each night on the waterer. I figure once she figures out the roosting grid she'll be top hen.
I love watching the antics of chickens - from their peeping as chicklets to the chortles, murmurs, and sniggles as they grow to hen hood. If you have never had the priviledge of being in a hen house as they are settling in for the night you have truly missed a memorable symphony.
