The tiny girls have been at ‘Gabi’s coop’ for almost three weeks now and it’s amazing how much thy have grown. Pretty soon I won’t be calling them little!
Crazy, right? Buffy (the buff Orpington) is the largest right now and she’ll pretty much outweigh the other girls. Chickpea (top right; bearded polish) is starting to turn into a pretty bird. These polish chicks were quite funny looking but with their feathers coming in, it’s like they are a whole new bird. And the coloring is amazing.
We’ve been leaving them outside in the coop for most of the day as it’s been above 80 here. They still haven’t figured out how to go up their ramp to the second floor but I’m sure they’ll figure it out. Hopefully. For now we place them up there and they seem to really like the darkness and quiet. Funny how such little things have interesting personalities.
Gabi is still entertained by them and she’s learning to be more gentle with them everyday. It really is sweet seeing the expressions on her face when we go to say good morning to las chicas.
