our cuddly girls
The "babies" are growing fast! They each weigh about 2 1/2 pounds, and judging by the size of Redder's gigantic feet they still have lots more growing to do!
When we open up the run door each morning, Winnie, Stella & Ray charge out and are ready to start their day while Chirpy & Redder hang out on the ledge of the coop for a while. It's their favorite time to climb up on our arms and shoulders for a little one-on-one time with us. They also like to fly onto our shoulders later in the day if we bring them leafy green treats. The big girls are not always good about sharing, so closer proximity to us helps ensure that the babies get their fair share. I'm not sure how much longer we'll want to have chickens launching themselves at us, but for now we're loving it!
