the chicks

I thought I'd post a few pictures of the chicks before they are indeed 'pullets' (chickens under one year old).
The kids love them and like to pretend that they're parrots. I am pleasantly surprised by Briar's gentle touch with them. He does occasionally made-handle them a bit roughly but mellows out when reminded to use gentle hands.

We've all been hit with an awful cold bug. Lots of dry coughing and tissues (is it possible to use more than we have been lately?) And now, on top of the cold, poor little Briar is battling the stomach flu. It sucks.
