The cute fluffy little chicks have turned into stately chicken matrons, who spend their days commenting on everything around them, and behaving in the most chickenly way possible.
They are much prettier than the photos show, because their feathers are actually iridescent, with mainly green, but some purple highlights in the sun.
They have started to lay (5 eggs so far!)--cute little pullet eggs, about 2/3 the size of a regular egg, but very lovely.
Today one of them even layed her egg in the nesting box!
I tried to get one of the "ladies" in the nesting box, but she hopped off so fast my picture turned out fuzzy! (darned digital slowness!)
