A Day in the Life of Chicks

Meet the first two chicks of our new flock. Five chicks were supposed to arrive by mail this week, but because of incubator failure we did not receive them. We still kept the order, and they should be here on the week of the 27th. In the meantime, we heard of a local kid who was selling week-old chicks so we got two, and they are unbelievably cute. Who knew that I could get so attached to little birdies.

possibly a frizzle bantam cochin

Still nameless, maybe
Mama Chick (for her protective streak),
Funster, or Fuzzy Feet
possibly a Barred Cochin Bantam

A day in the life of week-old chicks goes like this:

wake-up early
peep
eat
poop
drink
scratch
peep
poop
practice flying
stretch-angel pose
fall over
poop
drink
peep
peck
eat your mate's poop directly from the butt
peep
fluff feathers
poop
peep
take a nap
repeat in random order
have an early bedtime
