Chris and I took Thursday and Friday off work this week, and it has been lovely. We didn’t really DO anything in the vacation sense of the word, but we got a lot of stuff done around the house, a lot of quality friend and chicken time in, a lot of Battlestar Galactica watching accomplished, and much relaxation done. The chickens are getting very used to people and have loved (or at least tolerated) all of our visitors last weekend and this weekend.
In honor of brain-on-vacation mode, let’s just look at some pretty pictures, shall we?
While getting my staycation workout in (i.e. mowing the lawn with my favorite yard care instrument) on Thursday, I found this and thought it was a candy egg at first, it was so bright.
The coop, waiting for its inhabitants. We opened up the nesting box yesterday and found that a small animal had, indeed, begun building a nest in the coop! Oopsy. I guess we do need a door on the front of the coop. Stat.
And, of course, the chicks. Look at their wings! And their butt feathers are starting to come in, too, like little dandelion seeds.
