introducing...

one proud daddy chick,


and two new baby chicks!


this is posy


and this is bluebell.

I have never seen Benson so excited. He is thrilled to be the proud parent of two new baby chickens. He is so happy that he doesn't even notice that the poor little things run away (!) every time they see him. Anyway it is pretty fun to watch them grow... even though we only got them yesterday they are already bigger and have more adult feathers. Bluebell (an Araucana) is called such because she will lay blue eggs for us and Posy (a Buff Orpington) is called such because Benson's favorite book from the library last week was called "Nosy Posy."

Benson, you'll make a great daddy to those chicks. Don't be too sad that they run away from you, my kids do that too :)
