Natural elements for added interest and pine shavings. Bye bye, puppy pads! The warming lamp is off, too. Just a week or two until they're in their coop outside. Elvo's Barred Rock speckles are really started to show, and Tik-Tok's comb is growing quickly. It's surprisingly wobbly rather than stiff.

They sure are growing! Check out the timelapse. They go in the cage while their box is being cleaned. At center is Gopher with her sweet goofy eye.
Van Halen is a Black Australorp rocker and she likes to party. She's always up to something- likes to jump and is highly photogenic. If Van Halen's around, a good time will be had by all!
Gopher likes to go under anything she can go under. Best friend to Tik-Tok, she is the guardian of the clock. Tik-Tok rules the clock and Gopher guards it. She's always a little dirty and is known for her goofy eye and blackish stripe along the shoulder. Gopher's awesome.
This is Elvo. A Barred Rock, she's really brave and gets along with all the other chicks. She's named Elvo because she likes to stretch a lot and get elevated on the feeder.
Mies is a fourth grader who loves chickens. So we figured- why not get some while we're distance learning? Welcome to science class.
