Chicken Coop & Chase

Remember these little guys?  Well, (you know how it goes) they're not so little anymore...

here they are now.  Actually, this picture was last week and they're even a little bigger now.  Hard to believe they're the same fluffy little puffs we brought home almost two months ago.  Oh, and your eyes aren't playing tricks on you.  There are three baby chicks in the picture above, and four chickens in the picture below.  One of our little chicks (the brown one) died the second day we had her.  Devastating for our boys.  We went and bought a new one the next day, and my husband told me to get an extra for a back-up, just in case.  Well, there hasn't been a "just in case" so we have four chickens now.  

Mario (white)
Charles (all black)
Little Black Bear (black and white)
Little Squirrel (brown)
I guess my boys don't mind having hens as long as they have boy or Native American names.

And here's their humble abode/adorable country cottage in the works.  It's pretty much finished, but the final touches (like the hanging basket of flowers on the ground) haven't been added quite yet.  I'll do a final post on the whole coop when it's completed.  
I have to give a HUGE thank you to my amazingly handy husband.  He build this entire coop on his own from looking at a picture online (and made it look so easy).

The chickens themselves are fun, the coop is darling, but I have to say my favorite thing about having our chickens is watching my boys do their nightly chicken chase.  We've been letting the chickens wander the yard in the evenings when we're out, and they sure do give my boys a run for their money when it's time to go in.  Mario (the white one) is especially challenging, but my boys love a good challenge!

The cornering approach.

The chasing approach.

The sneaking approach.

Captured at last!  The proud victory smile.  

I tell you, I'm becoming a pet person more and more these days.  These four little chickens of ours have taught us valuable lessons, are the topic of our conversations, a source of tremendous joy, and bring us together as a family.  Who knows, we might have a whole farm before too long. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I  hope you found a little something worth your time.
