...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


Hoppin' on Momma

Things have been happening fast in the chicken yard.
The little girlies are growing up in a flash, 
right before our very eyes!

They're only a smidge over 2 weeks old.
Fluff is starting to get pushed out by growing feathers.
They sure are busy little gals.

They've figured out how to get up the ramp and into the coop 
all by themselves!

They spend most of the day foraging and playing
zipping here and there and everywhere.

They're starting to stray a little bit further from Mom,
but not too far, and not too long.

They still scurry backs for little naps 
and trips underneath momma to get warm.

They looooooooove hopping up on their momma!

They take a little ride for a few seconds and then slide off,
or they use her as a springboard to another perch.   

It makes me think of the Dr. Seuss book, Hop on Pop,
except for this is clearly a case of Hoppin' on Momma.

Stay tuned for more chickie fun to come!
