Chicks Chicks and More Chicks

Bright and early this morning the post office called to say our newest order of baby chicks was waiting for us.
We put them into a pen with some 2-week old chicks, not knowing if they would get along or not, and sat back to watch. It's so cute how the smaller chicks follow the older ones and they are all getting along nicely.
This evening I began clearing out the north side of the chicken house. It is covered in old rotten wood from when we worked on the chicken house and an old dead tree. I began burning the old wood and will be hauling off the old tree branches to be used for a future bonfire.
Once I have this area cleaned up I will begin fencing it in so the chickens will have more room to roam.

You sure have some spoiled chickies! They took me off chicken duty at work, so I haven't had to deal with them for a while.

With all the work you've been dong you certainly don't need a subscription to a gym :)
