Hot Chicks

Last wednesday, Darryl (the most amazing man in the world!) woke me up at 6:40am.  I got dressed with my eyes plastered shut and managed to shuffle out to the truck with Sadie.  We had to drop Darryl off at work so I’d have the truck to pick up a package from the post office in town.

I guess they don’t deliver “live” mail.

I drove home trying to hear the radio over 60 peeping chicks.

We ordered 50 dual purpose chickens, that means they’re good for laying eggs and for meat.  They’re split about half and half males and females.

This one’s a female (I think).

She’s so sweet.

This one is a boy.

I know this because he looks like a boy.

The other 10 chicks are bronze turkeys.

They’re really cute when they’re little.

When I took this guy’s (or girl’s) picture, it seriously pecked at it’s own foot and didn’t let go and started rolling around trying to get back on it’s feet.

That’s why we only got ten.  We didn’t want to invest a lot of money into such a stupid bird in case they all kill themselves.

Sadie loves watching the chicks in their box.

She’ll climb into her little chair and watch them for a long time, and if you happen to get within reach, she’ll grab your hand and throw it in the box.

Cause when you put your hand in the box, all the turkey chicks come running over like little raptors and start pecking at your rings.  And then you pick one up cause they’re just so cute and show it to Sadie.

See, she’s a smart cookie.  She knows that all it takes to pet one is to throw someone else’s hand in the box.
