they might come home with new friends.
Two new friends to be exact. Fluffy and Cornelia (Corny for short) are Barred Rock hens. We hope. I read recently that you can sex young chicks by throwing a hat or hankie over their head. A rooster will lift his head up when covered, while a hen will lie down. I'm pretty sure we'll be conducting this experiment when Fluffy and Cornelia get a little bigger.
Another new chicken related addition this weekend:
Perches and nesting boxes, made from repurposed closet storage units and materials. I love them. Let's hope the chickens do too.
Aidan and his friends helped George build the boxes. George is so patient with these boys, giving them turns using the tools, assigning them tasks, including them in the process. May these young boys grow up to be good daddies. May they love children and chickens alike.
My brother recently told me, "I fall in love at least several times a day."
Love is good. Especially chicken love.
