Now that the chickens have started laying, I have decided this will be my final post in this series. In a way, it’s like we’ve come full circle.
We have watched them grow from 4 day old fuzz ball babies living under a heat lamp in a box in our garage:
Into nearly full-grown hens laying their first eggs:
We converted an old wood shed into a chicken coop with an attached chicken run area:
And learned how to build things like nesting boxes…
…and roosting poles.
Hank attempted to eat the chicks while they were still babies living in our garage:
But the chicks survived and grew into their awkward teenage faze where they were half feathers half fuzz:
Once they were fully feathered they moved out of the garage and into the chicken coop:
We learned about their favorite treats:
|Strawberries, melons, grapes, stale bread, and spinach!|
And finally, we learned that chickens like to sunbathe:
I hope you have enjoyed the ‘Chick Days’ series! I’m sure the chickens will pop up now and then on the blog, just to say hi. For now, thanks for playing!
And don’t expect regular Sunday posts anymore…. 🙂
