It's been really cold lately.
But the girls seem to be doing fine.
They love to sit on this bench and look in...
Probably because they are thinking...hey, not fair, how come
They get to be inside where it's warm???
Annie is wondering why they are inside too!
Daisy is also wondering why these hunks of pooping
Feathers are running around in her space!
Ok space invader. This is MY space!!!
Well it WAS my space.
What!? Your not happy having it to yourself now?
You want the floor too??
OK I'm outta here
|Hey Cat..come back I was only kidding...|
|OK be that way--I found a better body to crawl on. Milo is my friend..|

The chicks are 6 1/2 weeks old and I let them out of their cage to run around the sunroom or the dog run every day some. Lexy pecks at them so we cant trust them with the big girls yet. I still havent figure out the laptop to down load pix yet...so I used my iPad to get this video so you all could see how big they are.

|Anyway I will figure it all out eventually.I have only me to figure it all out.|
I am taking photos of the chicks as they grow and will post some as soon as I can figure things out.
Con is going to be going in this week to see about having Cataract surgery. So I am a little nervous about that.
I shall return as soon as I figure things out.

|Its that time again. This time with more help.|
|Its only just begun. There's a ton more up there. :(|
|But oh the bugs to be found. :)|
They make for good eggs tho. Lexy trying to lay with Emma. I spy a brown egg in there.
The white egg is a fake.
The inside girls are 4 weeks old now and growing like weeds.
|They love getting out now. At least for a little while. Chloe is on the left. Gracies on the right.|
|Chloe was the friendliest at first. Yes I can tell them apart.|
|But Gracie turns out to be more bold. She hops right on me.|
|A couple days later and look at the breast feathers of Chloe, in back, they are coming in redish brown & speckled. When I let them out of the cage, I need to put towels over me or else. :)) which is why they only get out now and then. :)|
|I dont see much of this feather color on Gracie that Chloe has on her here, but both have pin feathers coming in like crazy.|
|They are very curious.|
|And very relaxed too. Look at those tails.|
|I see a few colored feathers coming on Gracie laying down but nothing like Chloes. They change hourly now.|
And its back to the cage. I have no clue how I am going to introduce them to the big girls in the cold of winter. They are small enough to stay in here for now, but they cant stay all winter.
|I need my studio back. Altho Daisy thinks this is kind of cool. She went up to them and got pecked so this is as far as she wishes to go.|
|To end with I am posting my last sketch I did for the Somewhere to Sketch blog. I liked it so much I framed it in an old fashioned frame and hung it on my wall.|
I am having problems with my desktop computer. I came in a few mornings ago and it was dead. Would not turn on. A couple days later it started up making noises ??? and walla I got it on. Not sure it will come on again so I did a blog post. I am trying to learn how to use my laptop for this
so if I don't post for awhile just know its computer problems. I need to learn out to get my photos onto the laptop.

|Fall has come to Oregon. Its starting to get pretty.|
|Fall around here means work. Con having to get up on the roof to clean gutters by hand. Gulp.|
|and with the leaf blower.|
|He has to sprinkle moss off along the ridge of the house or else moss builds up and ruins a roof. I am always so glad when this is done.|
|With all the rain we had the fields are greening up and our field is looking mighty good to this horse so he was knocking it over and Con had to go do some repairs.|
|She was trying to tell him to not fix it tho. :)|
|To keep up with all this work he is getting on the Treadmill in the mornings. I am too.|
Annie isn't to sure about this..
|Her pink ball is lonely|
|This is what I see in the foggy mornings lately when I go out to let the Girls out and put out the small bird food. Kind of reminds me of the movie THE BIRDS by Alfred Hitchcock. :)|
|The little girls are growing. They will be 3 weeks old on Monday or Tuesday. I have finally named them..They are Gracie and Chloe.|
|These are some sketches I did for the Somewhere to Sketch blog, this one was from google map in Israel. It was a very unusual restaurant added onto a store front with flowers on top..|
|This too was in Israel and someones home.|
|This is in Tuscany Italy which we all are in now till the end of the month and I got lost on the google map and decided to draw this. :)) Check out the link on the side bar here and come check it out.|
