It's that time of year again- the ice is rotting and the wild wind is blowing it off the lake. We went to investigate this morning and found some patches of open water.
Soon we will be able to hear the sound of the waves lapping up on the shore. One of the best sounds in the world.
The chicks are 3 weeks old now. I am anxious to get them outside soon. They are starting to smell. Bigger chicks = bigger poop = stinkier!
This chick has the most beautiful red coloured feathers on his back. Yes, his. I think he is a he.
This is chick A. I think this one is a she. No wattles yet.
My cochin, chick C. Pretty sure this one is a boy :(
Hahahaha. Chick E. I think is the other girl because she doesn't have wattles yet either. What a funny looking one! Reminds me of Gonzo or something.
Chick B, another boy! Oh man, 3 out of 5! Oh well. This one looks so regal.
