Titus coming on 4 months

We sure love this sweet boy! He sleeps through most nights, smiles, coos, and has even started taking occasional bottles of expressed milk!

4 Baby chicks

It's no secret that I've been wanting chickens for a while now. My Dad has had them for years, my mom got hers about a year ago, and I think they're the coolest! I mean they give you eggs, turn scraps into terrific compost, eat pests, bob around with all kinds of attitude... yeah... Well,  today was OUR day. We let Naomi, Josh and Dekker each pick a baby chick, and then Jake picked one for us. They are so dang cute! Let's just hope they survive us...

From left to bottom right: "Einstein" (Jake picked- Golden Laced Polish), "Changes" (Or that's what I call him, since Dekker can't make up his mind- Blue Wyandotte), "DeeDee the Chickadee" (Minnie's- Blue laced Red Wyandotte), and "Henry the hen" (Josh's - Salmon Faverolle).
