Today John got the roosts built. He’s so smart, that husband of mine!

The big girls looked at it, but didn’t seem to know what to do with it. LOL! Knowing Henrietta as well as we do, though, we weren’t at all surprised to find that she was the first one to try it out! 🙂

The baby chicks continue to grow like crazy. I’m still amazed at the fact that they seem so much more active now that they are out in the coop. Is it more light? Or just that they’re getting a little bit older? Not sure – but they continue to be great fun.

We’re looking forward to *hopefully* some warmer weather soon so that the chicken yard can get built and then the older girls at least to start with will be able to go in and out at will during the daytime hours.

I’m trying to figure out how I’ll adjust to not having chickens to check on while I’m in Spain! I leave early morning Sunday and will be gone for slightly more than 2 weeks. I’m hoping I can talk John and/or Jessica to take photos and blog here so I can check up from Spain!
