On A Hot Day In July...

There's nothing better than a mud puddle to cool off in.
I'm just glad they asked first so I got to choose their clothes.
And this is before they *really* got dirty.

No need to ask for a smile, though,
there were plenty of those to go around.
Thursday turned out to be bath night.

The Princesses And The Peeps

More baby chicks! Only this time the purpose is to put their eggs on the table instead of themselves.
Heidi is beside herself with joy, she can't wait to find out which are the girls and have them grow up so she can have the responsibility of collecting the eggs.
What? Isn't this what everyone does with their baby bathtub?
We got an incubator and hatched this batch ourselves, making for some great learning opportunities for us all.
This is probably old news for anyone with any knowledge of chickens, but I didn't realize that the chicks start peeping before they ever come out of their shells.
Or that it takes 24 hours from first little tap tap taps to baby chick.
I'm hoping we have lots of little egg layers in there.
