The Chicks Dig It

Here it goes… I miss blogging.  I took a break while our friend, Carl, transfers everything over from the old site.  That and I had some fears about using the new site.  While I still haven’t mastered the video postings (something that Carl will teach me soon), I have figured out photos!  I just had to share a few pictures of the chickens, guineas, and eggs.  First, check out how much the chicks have grown:

We also let the guinea fowl out of their house this week to free range in the front yard.  Here they are just moments after they first walked out:

Finally, the payoff for all the feed, construction, research, and worry:

Almost a Dozen Eggs!

Notice the difference in size between the eggs from Patty Lane and Cathy Lane:

Ad praesens ova cras pullis sunt meliora

(Eggs today are better than chickens tomorrow or a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush)

  • Leah - Oh the chicks are growing so fast! They are so adorable! I want to cuddle them! LOL

    I need to update my site too but it is so time consuming, and I don’t have any computer geniuses to help me so it’s all on me to figure everything out. It’s so time consuming… for now I’m leaving my site alone but at some point over the next couple of months I’m going to try to update it. Yeah I’m giving myself PLENTY of time. :pReplyCancel

  • Shelli - I didn’t know that you had more than one blog. The chickens are cute, I don’t know about farm fresh eggs though, do you have to worry about them being fertilized? That’s my worst fear about buying them, I’d hate to find a baby chicken inside, I’d have to give up eggs!

    And the answer is yes, I’m squeamish!

    Talk to you soonReplyCancel

  • Robin - Hello again! I’m guessing you deleted my comment on your other blog on the meat entry? (not sure why?) I know I posted there and now it is gone. I am a friend of Shelli’s and found your blog via her.

    Your chickens are beautiful! I had a good friend here in town who had chickens and I used to enjoy taking pictures of them. lol

    Have a great day – RobinReplyCancel

  • Tia Julie - Lacy,
    The chicks are amazing. Following nature along is a wonderous experience. Watching them grow so fast must be joyful. The difference in the eggs of Cathy and Patty are a daily reminder of just how God creates everything in it’s own uniqueness. Nature always puts me in a state of “awe”. Thank you for sharing your experiences.ReplyCancel
