Chicks and kittens
Mama chicken Sweetie and her 3 chicks are now enjoying the outside in their own little coop and pen until they can be let out with the big girls in a few weeks. They are getting so big at 2 weeks and 2 days old. And their mama don't want any one or any thing near them, I am hoping they all turn out to be hens.
Over the past weekend 2 kittens came inside to learn to be inside house cats. We ended up keeping the black kitten and not the 1 we first picked out. Every time we went out to the shed to water & feed mama kitty & the kittens the black one was first to greet us and follow us around. I think he picked us. The little gray girl is going to live with a friend in a few weeks, until then she will be hanging out with her brother and us. It has been interesting with kittens in the house, they are into everything and learn they are not aloud to climb up our legs. Little claws are sharp. Ouch !!!
