We ordered more chickens y'all. Because chicken math. These three, plus the three we already have, technically max out our coop space (depending on whose numbers we choose to believe), but the way chicken math works, we may find ourselves with more than six soon enough.

|Indigo ~ Sapphire Gem|
|Koko ~ Black Australorp|
We picked them up from the feed store, and they were peeping away the whole ride home. Now they're snuggled up under their mama hen heating pad (they've been sleeping a lot), and Bubby is waiting~ sort-of~patiently for them to come out and play.
The other three are still doing well, although I think they're a little tired of being cooped up. I keep seeing and hearing hawks, though, so I'm not willing to let them out by themselves until we have a secure area for them.
Speaking of boredom, my friend Bert recently sent the girls a xylophone to play, because their lives were dreary and meaningless without music (thanks again, Bert!). Hopefully we'll be able to get that, along with the chicken grit and oyster shell dispensers, installed in the coop soon.
I think that's all for now; I'm off to
tend to sit-and-watch-for-hours the babies.
