Remember those adorable chicks I introduced y’all to last month? Well they have been growing like crazy and were REALLY ready to bust out of their little crate alongside their mother. So I let them out to explore the world they hatched into and while doing so discovered something. Baby chickens are the most difficult thing in the world to photograph. At least in my humble, non-professional, chicken-minded opinion. Those little jokers were FAST!
Release the Kracken! I mean….the Chickens!
A bit cautious for maybe 3 seconds…..
Wondering what lay just beyond the barn….
Mama chicken clucked and fussed about, showing them scratch tequinies…..
Where the bugs hide……
A good time was had by all.
Then Mama needed a rest. So of course the children zoomed all around…..oh yes, they call her the streak! We are HOPING they are both hens.
In front of…
And eventually ON Mama.
There is no rest for the weary!
