First grade, wow!!
June says, ‘why yes, I am a cute chicken.’ We are loving our little silky chickens! They are so fluffy I want to die!
Sorry I’ve been neglectful in posting… once homeschool ended for the year, I went straight into photographing weddings and teaching photography workshops. Check out my latest weddings and workshop offerings by clicking here.
Dad recently created a gate on the brooder for the peeps to play outside.
We have to keep an eye on Moo Moos Kitty.
This peep sensed his presence and the possibility of impending danger.
Fluffy was around the other corner, and even though he was watching the big chickens at this point, he was also keeping an eye on the peeps.
She LOVES these peeps and cares for them really well.
The silky peeps are fluffy from head to toe and we can’t even stand it!
It’s no secret that I love fluffy chicken behinds, but these silky’s take it to a whole new level. Help me.
Often times, if the weather is nice, we will sit outside after dinner and just watch them scratch and learn and play. Don’t laugh, it’s good, clean, family fun!
Some of them prefer to stay in the safety of the brooder.
I love you, little peep peep!
They are fantastic (already) at catching bugs mid air, and they love stink bugs!
Our peeps were incubated for 21 days and hatched on Easter Sunday.
We are fascinated with their feet.
And for good reason! Can you even stand this?!
I believe this silky peep to be saying, “I am dreaming of zee better life.” (Check out the egg tooth at the end of his/her beak. That’s how they perforate the egg shell to hatch. It falls off about 1.5 weeks later).
We just love the markings on this peep.
Trust me when I tell you: there is NOTHING cuter than peep peep nap time.
I have been looking for a TV cabinet for our hearth room since we moved in last year. I found a few on Pottery Barn that I liked, but didn’t feel were worthy of the price tag (meaning, I didn’t LOVE them).
I showed my dad a few photos and described what I would like… a craftsman/barn door type cabinet. Much to my surprise, he actually made it happen.
I didn’t even request the built-in shelves, that was an added bonus!
If anyone is interested, he said he would more, $1,500 per unit, size is custom depending on your space and TV (you could also have just the cabinet, without the shelves).
Now that I know he is capable of such things (I believe he was purposefully keeping this from me), I have many more projects for him to tackle!
