They grow up so fast

'Member back in July when I showed yu this?

Those lil chickies wuz 'bout 2-3 weeks old then.
Now they have growed up. They look like this.

An' like this.

An' today, Daddy heard 'em fussin out there in their house. He found this.

Ok, he found the smaller brownish egg. The white ones are store bot. The henny penny's furst eggs are smaller then they will lay bigger ones.
Mommy thinks this is the gurl who laid the lil egg.

The sun is real brite on her, but her comb (top o' her head) an her wattles (unner her beak) are more red than the uther gurls. That's how yu can tell if they are layin, unless yu catch 'em on the nest box.

So I am seein sum fresh eggs in my future. When they all start layin, it'll be a egg-rich 'vironment round my place. Plenty o' eggs fur all o' us!

Ok, an jus sum bits o' trivia fur yu if yu wanna know more 'bout chickies.

Don't need no noisy rooster to get eggs. The eggs jus won't be fertilized.

Chickens need 'bout 14 hours of lite per day to kick in the egg-makin parts. Sunshine or arty fishul lite wurks.

Gurl chickies unner 1 year of age are called pullets.

An a chickie will lay the most eggs the furst year or 2 of her life. She'll keep layin eggs affer that, jus not so many.

Fas in atin huh?

Bugged, or is it debugged?

Hi. My name is Zoe. I like to eat bugs.
So there. I tol' yu. Sumtimes I can't help it. I eat too many bugs. They're out in my yard jus waitin to be cleaned up. Bug binge.
Then the nex' mornin, I don't wanna eat my brekkie. Maybe the bugs are havin a pawty in my tummy.
I don't know.

That's whut happened this mornin. Don't wurry, I'm fine now.

Furst clue I dint feel so hot wuz this mornin at Really Early Dark O'clock. Tux came an got Mommy to go outside. That's nuthin outta the ord ee naree. But 'cept this time, I went out too. That wuz out of the ord ee naree.
Mommy watched me. She could tell I wuz poopin or at least tryin to.
I came back in an we went back to bed. She tol me not to throw up in the bed. An since I am always a gud grrl an 'beed ee ant an junk, I dint. Throw up.
But at brekkie time o'clock, I dint eat my brekkie. Now this has happened afore. No big deal.
In bout a minute or hour or sumfin, I went out to the food dispensin area. Mommy's not too brite but she wunnered if I wanted to eat my brekkie. I tol' her yes, I did. So I ate all my brekkie. Yum!

So I guess I wuz bugged but now I am debugged. All is gud!
