What a difference a week makes!

So ,while I was at the beach, getting tanned and watching sea turtles swim by my friends, my little chicks and my big little chicks were all getting… HUGE.

The Golds are 10 weeks, as of yesterday.  My Reds are 6 weeks now.  They are only slightly smaller than my Gold hens now.  Last week, they weren’t that big.  I’m hoping another good growth spurt will get them to a size I will feel comfortable attempting to integrate them.

For Father’s Day, we made the strawberry shortcake and the chickens got their first taste of strawberry tops.  Everyone seemed to love them.

You don't think Little Dude missed his favorite rooster while we were gone, do you?
