Before we delve into the world of hidden talents, allow me to give you an update on the new little girls.
Progress is being made but it's oh so very slow. Storm seems to be the most adventurous, zipping out into the pasture while Clara and Sharona appear to depend on her for leadership. All three can be easily bamboozled by the big girls, but I did see Clara and Sharona at the feeder at the same time a couple of big girls were there. Now that IS progress.
I had to pick up one of the girls the other day and oh lordy, you'd think she was headed for the chopping block. Clearly none of them were handled as chicks.
In the evening when it's time to lock up, I sweet talk the three as they perch above me for the night.
I'll try my darnedest to get some decent photos of the three for the next post. Sharona's colors are coming in and they're quite striking.
Last week I stopped in to Tractor Supply for some shavings -- I usually prefer to get supplies at my local feed store, but I do like TSC's shavings. As I walked into the cart area some chicken-themed wind chimes were seductively luring me. Yes, I am a sucker for wind chimes. Big ones, little ones, cheap ones, expensive ones. And these particular beauties were on sale. I was doomed.
Here Spice demonstrates her abilities to ring those chimes with just a flick of an ear. Boy, what talent!
I'll hear them ring a ding when there's no hay in the manger and when there's no breeze. Yes, I have to wonder if the donks are musically inclined.
