To keep them safe, the chicks had spent most of their time in the chicken tractor until the other day. Michael let them out in the yard for a few hours and they had a blast!
The first order of business was figuring out how to get out and how to get back in
No worries, we’ll come your way
Iris to eat, how tasty!
Or just good old bugs in the grass.
I think I’ll learn to fly in all of this open space…
Mr Mallard stopped by for dinner.
He’s beautiful and he knows it!
Mr Mallard said “Be careful around those young one’s dear!”
She’s loves him but she’s very independent. I think I heard her say “I can more than hold my own with these young whippersnappers!”
The chickens didn’t seem to worry too much about the ducks visiting. Maybe that’s because Mr and Mrs Mallard often say hi as they walk past the tractor.
He always stands guard when she eats. It’s really cute!
Time to go home, this yard is a little too crazy for us tonight!
No worries, the chicks will keep things hopping…
Hey sisters, I think there’s something good over here..
On second thought, let’s head over the fence and look for some lettuce seedlings. I hear their really tasty!
Or not, depends on your palate 🙂
The party went on until they went home at dusk.
Those young chickens love to party!
I was ready for bed at nine 😉
Adorable! I know this post took a lot of time just because of the photos. Your captions are so cute. Thanks for making me smile.
I’m glad it made you smile Michele! hope all is well with you~
I love watching chickens. It’s cheap therapy. Very relaxing. Much better than fish.
LOL, definitely better than fish, but fish can be fun if your trying to really relax 😉
Love your little ladies! They’re organic bug killers! The ducks crack me up….they look like they have a little smile all the time. Thanks for sharing.
HI Sally! I love the ducks too. We’re so lucky because they come back every year and act like our pets but we don’t officially “own” them. They are awesome! Thanks for commenting!
This was so lovely to see and read! How very fun!!! The girls are beautiful, too. 🙂
