Preteen Chickens

Our babies are now almost 4 weeks old and getting so big! We’ve been taking them to the backyard for outdoor playtime when the weather is a bit warmer and they love it. We hope to have their coop and run finished in 2 weeks so we can kick these stinky birds out of our garage.

Each member of our family got to name a chick. I’ll post some glamour shots of each chick at a later time, but for now, here are some group shots of our girls: Sunshine Marigold (named by Emma), Lucy or LuLu (Rachel), Esmerelda Valentine (Josh), and Monster Truck (Gabe). Yes, you read that last one correctly. I’d love some ideas of nicknames for her!
