Ellie's chicks are starting to really show their personalities now! They are getting a bit bigger and finding their wings, so they have learned to fly up on the perches in their brooder. It's really funny to see a tiny chick flapping her tiny wings and jumping around like crazy! But they all still love to be close to their mama and I often find them all cuddling when I stop in for a visit. The chicks will poke their heads out to see what's going on before leaving the safety and warmth of Ellie's feathers.
|"Mama, is it ok if I go visit with the crazy chicken lady?"|
They've also taken a liking to walking all over her, which she doesn't seem to mind.
And recently they got to try out a new treat!
Once Ellie tells them play time is over (she has a specific chirp that calls them back) they obey and settle back in for a nap.
Sometimes I see Ellie trying to get a couple moments of shut eye here and there whenever she can. Apparently being a mom to five active babies is hard work! Nap when the babies nap, right? :)
