Seriously guys.... SERIOUSLY!!!! Are these not the cutest things on EARTH!?!?!?! I am totally in love with my little Chickie's.... Minus the fact that they shit in my vintage train case. It's okay though because I got the cutest little pictures of them!!! AAAHHHHHH I just love love love love them! This was my crazy Moms idea (of course) to get these little babies! They are only 10 days old and sssooo sweet! I've named them Etta, Patsy, and Georgia. I think at this point they sort of all look the same so the names will be chosen once they are bigger! My favorite is the little chubby one... (maybe I can tell the difference). My moms response to getting babies was " Gus and them can grow up together...." WOW... We are a crazy family! It's okay though. We have had chickens in the past. We have a huge backyard and this big ol chicken coop that has been empty for 5 years since the death of " Momma" .... No people we didn't make our grandma live in the chicken coop, who do you think we are? Hooligans? "Momma" was a red hen we used to have... My mother named her.... (HOW ORIGINAL, This is why I have taken over naming our pets) Momma was so wonderful. She used to follow my Mom all around. My mom would open the coop and she would walk down all the stairs and just peck around. I used to hold her all the time and she used to think my freckles were food and peck my arms... It was funny... Then we got puppy Lola (Rottweiler) and Lola thought she was a chew toy so Momma roosted up in the trees and didn't go in her coop... and a raccoon ate her... Mother Fucker! I hate raccoons... I don't care what any of you guys say. They are mean as shit and they eat cats and my cousins bunny (through the cage might I add)... Have you ever seen one? THEY ARE HUGE!!!! Don't even get me started on my hate for raccoons.... My CRAZY old neighbor I mean OLD AS DIRT used to catch raccoons in this cage he made which I thought was really stupid because he didn't do anything but spray them with spray paint to see if he could catch the same one... Plus I think that's mean and cruel... BBBUUUTTT he's crazy and he digs in the grocery store dumpster for food even though he is rich... (grew up in the depression) and to make matters worse He makes us all these baked goods but we always throw them out... I don't want "Dumpster Cakes" He also has like 5 slot machines so I dealt with his craziness so we could play them as kids... HAHAHAHA Wow this post has taken a turn for the worst! All the memories of crazy Bob are coming back to me!
okay moving along in this mind of mine.... Back to the chickies!! These little gals are all going to be white... Which I am not too crazy about and so my Dad is thinking of buying some red ones... (Yes everyone I am the girl on charlie and the chocolate factory... Beruka or something) The red ones are just better... They lay brown eggs. Whatever though we have never had white ones so its a change, I love them anyways! Gus loves them too... A LOT... We let him in the coop and at first he was like WTF!! Now he's obsessed and all he wants to do is get in the cage and sniff them all over. So when he goes over the the parentals house he runs up all the stairs to check on his little chickies.
Here he is... I couldn't even get him to act normal he was not taking his eyes off those babies!
See what we've done.... He's obsessed... oh man...
The funny part is the chicks are not even scared of Gus. My mom was yelling at me to get him out because she thought the chicks would die of a heart attack but when we really held him back the chicks would come up to him to check him out it was funny. I really want to get an "Easter" picture with Gus wearing bunny ears with the little chicks around him... wouldn't that be so funny??? They sell these bunny ears at Petsmart for dogs.... I might need to purchase it...
Do any of you have or had chickens?
Disclaimer: No animals were hurt during these photos (Gus did accidentally step on one of the chicks but its perfectly fine). Etta, Patsy,& Georgia will not be consumed by humans... They have names they are pets... We will eat their eggs though. If any raccoons are reading this.... FUCK OFF!
