From Chick Chick to Chook Chook

In a matter of a few short weeks - our little baby chicken is almost as big as the big girls. She has made a friend with one particular one, and they others are no longer giving her a hard time. It was difficult to watch, but the pecking order has played out.
She still enjoys a little cuddle now and then.
It's been fun to watch her grow and great for the kids. Peter in particular has enjoyed taking a keen interest and the funny thing is, that it's his other chook "Francis" that has become Chick Chick's friend.

Don't you just love chickens! They have their own little society, and they're always so interesting to watch. We always like to give our baby chicks a worm and watch them "play football" with it. Maybe cruel to the worm, but hilarious.

How fast your baby has grown, glad our kids don't grow quite that fast.

Annie, go back to chick chick's baby photos and look at the difference in your little Peter- he has been growing this summer too.

So glad to see that Chick Chick really was a Chook after all and not one of those noisy cockerels! Lucy x

Very cool. One day I would like a few chooks of my own. In a Richmond 2 bedroom flat, it isn't really an option right now!
Thanks for dropping by my blog!

Ooh - I love chickens. We're considering a move to the country and they'd be the first thing I'd get!

great to see your chick thriving, but even nicer to look at the sunflower in your photo - mine are a distant memory from last summer!!

Donna said...

Why do they have to grow up?

Hi Annie, Hope you don't mind-I just wanted to leave a comment and see if I got the little picture to work.
