07:38 am - Oh, Did I Forget to Mention?
I guess maybe I didn't post about this. After Damian and Maya's "Great Chicken Massacre" last spring (see my May 19th entry) they ordered a new batch of baby chicks. They received them at the end of June, and the chicks are currently about 2 months old. They are still babies, technically, because they are "cheeping" and not "clucking". (Actually, I have been hearing a few clucks lately.) They will not start laying until around 5 months old, so they've still got a lot of maturing to do. These chickens are exceptionally beautiful. Maya was very careful about choosing the breeds (their last chickens were given to them) and I've been excited to see increasingly colorful feathers developing every day. The rooster is going to be spectacular! Love those Silver-Laced Wyandottes!
