Welcome

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

My newest grandbabies

All of you saw Parks pen he made last year. Amazing that he made that by himself with no instruction so we couldn't say no to chicks after all that effort right? But actually I wanted some as well. Friday morning the store got some chicks in so Parker and I dashed to get them and got back minutes before his bus came for school. The first chick pictured is Lex's favorite. It will hatch blue eggs. Cool huh? The other 2 could be roosters. I love silkies (they are pretty yes these chickens are definitely styling chickens) so I'm taking a chance on them. It's 50-50. We'll know in 8 weeks rather or not they might be someone's dinner. Agggh I hope not. We had a black one but while at church it got in its water (which wasn't much) but enough to make him cold and he was dead when we got home. Despite lots of tears he was buried and we learned a hard lesson. Wednesday they will get more chickens in and we will update you with our new additions. They love to be held. Shae loves them and they don't mind her squishing them. We let them out today on the floor and the white one was slipping and sliding. Funny site. Then we put them on the carpet and she was like I'm a free lady. Whoo hoo and was running everywhere and jumping on our laps. The other 2 just wanted to cuddle.

Yay for grandbabies! McCall was a little upset that they weren't real babies, but not really. But they're way cute, I hope they're nice and plump by the time I get home so we can have a nice dinner.

Oh I'm sad the black one died, he was my favorite even though i only spent a few moments with him. Glad you have some babies again. :)

Their names are: Dixie the first chicken on the blog the dark brown one. Hercules the other brown one that Parker is holding. Zazoo the white crazy one. And the black one that died was Koko-O(meaning night in Native.)

Shelby! I thought YOU would be announcing! lol :) And Yes, chicks are my dream and these one look right at home with everyone and NOT on JD's dinner plate. I think that Zazoo will be my favorite! I bet Parker and Mom you are happy to have some chicks finally.

Lexi said...

Awe they are just so cute! (: I love them! Poor Koko'o we miss her so much already! Too bad J.D., we'll eat you before you can eat them. It's so fun bec/ we each have our own and just cuddle and play with them all day.

Sounds like the Hansen curse all over again. I just hope the cute white one doesn't die.
