My dear friend Jennifer recently embarked on the journey of raising chickens. You can read all about it on her blog here.
So these chickens have now made her house the absolute coolest place to be in Addy's mind. We visited them last week (because Addy is asking all the time, "Can we call Jennifer and see how her chickens are growing up?"), and Jen's youngest boy showed us what a good chicken-raising helper he is:
That's bug (as Jennifer calls him), holding one of the friendly hens while Addy tries to feed her a leaf. These kids are adorable, are they not? Bug is amazing with these chickens. He jumped right in their grazing area and quickly picked one up. Addy tried to emulate, but her quick movements scared them all away. Regardless, she was tickled pink to spend some time hanging out with them. I have to admit, they are pretty cool to watch! Maybe next time I'll try to pick one up too!
