I've been mega-lazy about putting new pictures on here but I just wanted to get a post up and wish everyone a happy Easter. My kids were up at 6 a.m. to search for eggs (which is good since they will be getting up early again for school tomorrow, ha ha).
The chicks are growing rapidly and getting a lot more feathers. Ryan and Morgan built twelve nesting boxes and moved them down to the coop, but the chicks will still have to stay in the house for a while. They're a lot like the guinea pigs, eating and pooping.
Our two new girls (now renamed Toffee and Jillian) are settling in well and getting into the routine. They squeak loudly at breakfast time and are eating veggies but aren't too interested in any fruit except for apples. I can't wait for the dandelion leaves to grow and for our garden to get under way so we can give them fresh goodies!
