ever since the chickens have arrived, we’ve had a lot of playdates. who would have thought some fuzzy little poultry could make us so popular. 🙂 (disclaimer: it’s not that the people who have come over only like us for our chickens. they come over all the time. just not so many in a row. that’s where the fuzzychickeneffect comes in.)
today, my friend melysa came to play with her boys and later, jessica joined us with her dynamic duo. (um. she also brought a bounce house. awesome.)
we decided it was warm enough for the chickens to check out the great outdoors for the first time in their little week old lives.
at first lucy was out with us, because i want to get her used to the chickens in a friendly way that doesn’t involved eating them. when one fluttered up with her brand new feathery wings, lucy pounced and had the chick in her mouth for a nano-second before i had her by the collar dragging her into the house. the chicken survived the ordeal and is probably telling all of his chicken friends about the harrowing adventure.
after the chicken excitement, we had lunch, and naturally, freezie pops…
little kids are terrible with freezie pops. i don’t know why the concept of pushing them up from the bottom is so hard to grasp.
it was a super fun day. 🙂
