I love watching the kids play with the chicks. This is what I got them for. Abriel has the chicken touch. She's the only one who can pick them up without them making a fuss.
She is very calm and confident with them, with is good to see since she is shy and reserved around people.
When I first started painting the coop, Samuel asked me if it was going to be all one color. I said, "Yes, except for the trim." He said, "I was hoping you would paint a rainbow on the side." Then he seemed to think for a minute, and said, "Actually, I don't want it to have a rainbow. If we have a rooster, he might not like it." I'm not exactly sure what his thought reasoning was behind that, but I do know that he is very interested in the welfare of any potential roosters we might have.
