Another One Bites The Dust

5th one down!
My heart is sad. Why do I love having my chickens as much as I do? Someone told me that chickens eat scorpions. Well... maybe they have to "big" to take on the nasty beasts. Mine was not. The troubling thing is...I let the baby girls out to feast on bugs, watched her get stung, squack like mad, & fling the thing as far as she could.
2 hours later she was dead!
She was Ryan's
He will be sad in the morning.

Updates on the Girls

After loosing 2 pullets to the heat, we decided to let them soak in Moose's pool. They don't love it but actually sit in it for a minute!
3 new chicks...Cuckoo Maran, Teddy Bear Americauna & Blue Lemondrop
Don't really have names, kinda over that... i guess.

Teddy Bear Americauna. Blue and Green Eggs.

Blue Lemon Drop Bantam
Still hoping she turns blue...

Cuckoo Maran...chocolate colored eggs

Our biggest & most calm, Georgie

My friend called Weezie sexy the other day! I guess she kinda is. All of the pullets LOVE my ring. They peck at it. They also peck at our toenail polish. Which reminds me, Ryan HAD to have his painted red the other day.
Ryan, " Mom paint my nails red"
Mom, "NO, Ryan, that's for girls"
Ryan, "But the chickens will think they are strawberries!"
So, I did!

I decided to let them "free range" all day long

Miss Sexy!

Whats Grosses than Gross?

What do you get when you have 1 daredevil of a boy, an attempted back flip & a diving board?
(BEWARE for the squeemish!)
First... I am SO thankful I was at the pool to comfort my boy & to make sure he didnt sink to the bottom of the pool!
Second... I am EVEN more thankful that this wasn't worse than it was, cause it coulda been!
Third...his hair is growing back!!!!
