|hey, it's getting crowded in here!|

In the meantime, we’ve been getting to know our 6 girls and my two little charges are quite enamored with the latest addition to our menagerie. We’ve learned a couple more things about chicks:
They go savage for dried mealworms. I read that this is a favorite treat so I purchased a container of them. Boy, do they ever love them. At first, I was actually nervous they were going to kill each other in their mad, frantic, peeping scramble to peck up every scrap and bit of worm.
This is probably obvious to everyone but having chicks in the house is a messy ordeal. I’ve moved them to the breezeway now that they’re older and have at least spared most of the house from their mad, dusty ways.
So, without further ado---I’d like to introduce our little brood of girls. These are baby pictures, as you can see above they are much bigger now!
