A Week of Photos

We went on a few nice hikes this week.

It was so nice and sunny that I was able to take the chicks outside for photos.

I’ve definitely relaxed a lot about having Suki around the chickens. She wasn’t allowed around the first girls until just this year, but these guys…

"There's something behind me, isn't there?"

“There’s something behind me, isn’t there?”

I can’t say it wasn’t a bit stressful at first, but she was fantastic and I think she may have been more afraid of the tiny chicks than they were of her.

"Ahhh, it's touching me!"

“Ahhh, it’s touching me!”

They even walked right up and tried to take a taste of Suki’s toenail.

“These are my chickens. There may be many like them, but these ones are mine.”

The hens also got their first look at their new coopmates. They were not as accepting as Suki. Even gentle Sel tried to peck them.

This is completely normal behaviour. I’m not going to attempt any serious introductions until the chicks are older.

There is no love in her eyes. Only murder.

One of the chicks tried to hide under the hem of my pants.

I put the ladies out in their pen to munch on grass and let the little guys explore their future coop.

Then the trio had their first picture with the mountain in the background.
