Well, I’m not sure where to start because I’ve been busy this whole week and it’s caught up with me. Tuesday was My Girl’s birthday and I’ve been busy planning her Sweet 16. Hard to believe. Then Thursday was my birthday, as well as St. Patrick’s Day.
Friday was the Australorp & Buff Orpington babies’ 1-week-aversaries. I took pictures, as per the usual.
Today was their 2-week, but I’ll have to get it later because I’ve been busy with party planning all day. I also missed the Mystery Bin Girl’s 2-week on Tuesday. I’ll try to snag pictures of at least Peanut tomorrow.
One of the reasons for the busy week was this – one of my Littles had a bum leg and I had to take care of her.
Here she is today… about 4 days after being returned to her flock.
She was actually crouching to jump down. In the brooder, she is no different than anyone else.
My Pip Chick is turning 16 weeks tomorrow…
Here he is today…
For those of you following along at home… I’m calling the “Pip vs Pippi” drama over. This chick is a BOY. He stands tall and walks more upright than the girls, behaves just like papa, and already has pointy little nubs where spurs will someday be.
And look at those waddles and comb!!! It’s bigger than the adult hens now. NOT a girl. If this child lays an egg in 4 weeks… it will be a miracle.
