I've been missing our chickens lately, so I thought I'd share a few videos I found from the first year we had them. This photo is of Dorothy the first day we got her. Being a two-day-old chick is so exhausting, you often fall asleep in your food dish while eating.
This first video was taken in March 2011, when the chicks were about two weeks old. This was their first trip outside and their minds were blown!
This video was taken the very next day. It didn't take them long to feel more comfortable testing out their new wings outside.
Just two short months later in May 2011- the ladies have entered their awkward teenage phase...
And then by January 2012, they were full grown chickens fighting over a dish of oatmeal and flinging it all over each other.
Sadly, we had to find a new home for the chickens when we moved, but I'm looking forward to the day when we have a big enough yard to get more baby chicks! Only next time we'll know better and won't try to raise them in our living room.
