So I'm proud to introduce the following ladies to you...
|Please welcome...Wilson Phillips!|
First off we have our girl Chynna. Now she is smaller than the other two and she is a bit ditzy. She will be pecking and scratching at something in the grass while the other two have wandered away. And then in a split second she will become panick stricken and will flutter and run over to the other two. She is a bit neurotic, and seems to be a behind developmentally than the other two. She is just now sprouting her wing feathers and the other two ladies have a ton of wing feathers and their tail feathers are coming in nicely. Here's Chynna...
Next we have Wendy. Now this girl is a bit odd. She is very independent and always the worry wart. She is always looking around to make sure nothing or no one is about to give her any troubles. When we stick our hand in the brooder box she runs the opposite way. She does prefer to be cuddled close to your chest...then she'll hush up. But she doesn't like to be handled too much. She walks all over everyone when they are at the feeder mainly because she just seems so unaware of everything around her. Sounds a LOT like Cooper! LOL! Here's Wendy!
And rounding out (pun intended) the bunch is our girl Carnie. Now...like the real Carnie Wilson...this girl will eat anything you put in front of her face! She is round, robust, large and in charge! Carnie is hilarious! She will always be the first one to come up to you if you put your hand in the brooder box. While they are out in the yard she will walk around pecking and scratching but promptly return to us to see if we have any treats in our hands. But unlike the real Carnie...this girl will NOT be getting Gastric bypass! We want her large and poppin' out the eggs! Here's Carnie...careful she might try to eat you through the screen!
It's been great having these three girls here. They have such different personalities, which seems weird because they are CHICKENS! But honestly, I can't believe how different they are. We always crack up whenever we are out in the garage with them or in the yard. Chynna cracks us up the most. She can go from preening her fluff to sleeping in a matter of seconds.
|Doop dee doo...I'm cleaning my fluffy feathers...|
The chicks are about a week and a half old and it's amazing to see how quickly they change, physically. Their feathers are all starting to come in, well all except Chynna's. We wonder if she was a late hatcher or if she is just going to develop slower than the other two. Mike jokingly said tonight...she's our charity case, she won't produce any eggs. She's just here for the food. :) Hopefully the other girls pick up her slack! :) Ha ha!
Well, not much else has been going on around this joint. Well except INSANITY! Holy hell. Week two isn't really any easier. Although I'm happy to say that I've dropped 4.5 pounds since I started last Monday. While the work outs are a ton of work, eating 5 times a day is HARDER! When Michael has to work I get up at around 6 AM to prepare 4 of his 5 meals to take with him and then I drink my protein smoothie and do my work out. I feel blessed right now though. He's been off work the past few days so we've been able to sleep in a bit and it isn't such a rush in the morning to get all the meals put together and packed up. We've been eating healthy food and Mike enjoys that. But I miss a few things...for example
-bacardi and coke
-chicken pot pie
Oh heavens...the list goes on and on! I have recipe books FULL of foods I miss! But I have to say that I've been sleeping a little bit better and seem to have more energy! So this whole Insanity thing is working out fairly well.
Well it's bed time! I have Cardio Recovery tomorrow! YAY! We are going to check out the King Tut exhibit at the Pacific Science Center tomorrow. Hopefully it's good! :) Have a great Hump Day tomorrow!!!
