Gettin' big babiez

Babiez are gettin' so big! It's amazing how much the "little" ones are catching up to the Australorps. Who now have names. I don't know which is which, but John made a comment when they were little that they looked like penguins. And that comment has stayed with me. So one of them is Penguin and the other is Joker. And speaking of Batman! Cocoa looks an awful lot like the Penguin played by Danny DeVito in the movie. She's got this fluff of baby feathers around her neck and everything else is growing into adult feathers and she looks like a cross between the Penguin and the Hunchback of Notre Dame!

First pic is Penguin, Joker and Sylvester. Second is Penguin, Kiss, Cocoa and Tweety. Third is Tweety, Penguin, Joker, Kiss and Cocoa. Last is all six! Penguin and Joker. Cocoa and Kiss. Tweety and Sylvester.

John has gotten all of the corner posts on the old coop replaced. Today he sprayed it with more bug killer to get rid of any remaining mites. He only used 1/2 of the bottle, so he said he'd let it sit for a few days and probably on Sunday use up the rest of the bottle just to be on the safe side. Then Tues & Wed, he hopes we can get the old coop re-chicken wired and he can get the new doors and roosts built. Then we can give the girls free rein on all the coops.
