The chickens are in the pre-teen/ teenage stage and have been upgraded to the luxury of a dog crate. Their feathers are starting to come in nicely, but they look super awkward. This is the time where they are really trying to find their identity – no more cute little chicks. Their claws are starting to get bigger and longer – which is totally freaky. I think chicken claws have made my list of things that terrify me. If Daniel were to play a cruel joke on me, it would be touching me with a chicken claw. Eeekk…it’s giving me the chills thinking about it.
Anyways…they are growing fast and becoming more daring. I’ve noticed that they like to make eye contact – which is a little unsettling. Dang, am I scared of the chickens? Daniel was out of town this past week and I had to feed them. I would say it’s like a Jack in the Box. You never know when one is going to come at you out of nowhere. You can prepare yourself, but it will still scare the crap out of you. Please tell me I’m not the only one with chicken anxiety.
The Coop Update.
We made some progress this past weekend on the coop. The floor is done, yay! I still have no idea what it’s going to look like, but I am excited!
Apparently chickens lay better eggs when they have windows in the coop, so we are going to Habitat for Humanity this weekend to look for some.
Here are some pictures of the progress so far!
