The Chickens and the Eggs.
Today we visited the farm of a friend to see the new chicks and visit the hens. The boys were in heaven - fresh air, animals, and room to roam!
A was the first to wander into the hen house and look in to discover that there were fresh eggs just sitting there ready to collect!
Once G saw them too he was soooo excited. They gathered the eggs and placed them in a bucket...
A was so excited about the fresh eggs, in fact, that he kept checking to see if the hens who were busy laying were done yet...and was so interested and excited that even the clucking of the hen that he was petting (while busily laying) didn't phase him. He said he "didn't know they needed privacy!"
Both boys were so happy - both loved stomping in the mud, seeing the new chicks, visiting the hen house, and being outside with the animals. A said he wanted to stay...forever. :) What a fun time (thanks J!).
A wants to look up the different breeds of laying hens again, so he can compare our photos to see who was what. So many beautifully feathered chickens of every color!
