Little Chicks Romping in the Wild (urban backyard)

Nobody likes Mondays. Monday’s are boring and stupid and statistically more people have more meetings on a Monday than any other day of the week. Mondays are for meetings and the only people who like meetings are bosses and managers. To all the bosses and managers out there, I’m sure you have other likeable qualities.

That is why this Monday I have brought you something to start your week off right. Something better than a meeting.

A video with my baby chicks and bluegrass music.


I shot this video a few weeks ago so the chicks are actually much bigger than this now. Almost all their fluff is gone and they’re threatening to make a break from their brooder.

They still have a few more weeks of growing before I can start to integrate them with the older hens. Which I plan to do on a Tuesday because I’d imagine even chickens are in a bad mood on Mondays.

Tomorrow is Canada Day in Canada and I will be taking the day off. Which makes today, Monday, really Friday for me, because I’m off tomorrow. But that also means that Wednesday (when I’ll be back to work) is Monday. It’s all very confusing but I can assure you of one thing.

I will be eating hot dogs.

    Your chicks are adorable!! I have silkies and orpingtons,love my pet chickens!!! My condolences on the death of Norma,was her prolapse too severe to treat? Often a prolapse can be treated with sugar or prep H as both help to shrink swollen tissue,additional calcium can also be given in the form of calcium/tums tablets or liquid calcium as calcium helps stimulate muscle contraction which may help prolapsed tissue retract.

      Hi Mia – No, Norma was fine when she went to bed and was 99% dead when I found her in the morning. :( It was terrible. ~ karen

      • Mia says:

        It is very heartbreaking when they die and unfortunately prolapse and egg binding issues are serious problems for our girls. Again my condolences,it would have been horrible finding her in the morning. That final kiss/hug goodbye is one we always remember.
