Passings of Chicken Little & Spartacus

It's been a while since I last wrote.  How much can I write our chickens?  Not much.  I could write about any chickens or do a while chicken education type thing but that is not likely to happen. 

Have some sad news.  Chicken Little has passed on to that great big chicken coop in the sky.  Blame it on the other chickens, that is all I have to say on the matter. 

We are also down another one, specifically the Rooster, Spartacus.  We had always planned on using him for food.  It was time.  He was crowing all hours of the day and night.  God Bless out neighbors for being so tolerant.  We didn't really hear him crowing until the weather got nice and we were able to keep our windows open for air.  RIP Spartacus.

All of the baby chicks I wrote about previously are integrated out in the coop and doing nicely.  At first the older hens ignored them except for Pilot.  Here's a pic of that, taken at night time.  They were all crowded together. 

Now they all seem to be acclimated to each other. Here's some pics I took a couple of days ago.

They are also enjoying the warmer weather.  We let them roam around freely when we are outside to keep an eye on them.  We spend a lot of time outdoors during the nice weather doing gardening and spending time with the kids.

Check back soon, we are going to incubate some more egss and hopefully get a lot of chicks hatched.
