They are huge!

The chicks are getting really, really big. Especially Pot Pie- she is enormous! Unfortunately, Mrs. Tweedy has been suffering from some "intestinal distress" that is affecting her nutrient uptake and thus growth, so she is kinda runty right now. This is a photo of Pot Pie a few days ago- look at how big her wing is!

The Rockettes, Zippy and Rosie are all almost as big as Mrs. Tweedy, and they all have amazing little black and white spotty wings. Beldar and Pria are starting to hold their own, and they too are growing stubby little wings and getting nice and spunky.

I've plum run out of AA batteries for the digital camera- Damn! I worked on the henhouse this weekend and got it completely roofed. It looks awesome.

You need to get rechargeable AA batteries. It will make a HUGE difference, and there's a big cost savings, too.

I bucked up and bought one today. It has only been about two years of procrastinating in the making.

Unlimited photo taking here I come!
