Here comes the sun (picture heavy)

Plenty of opportunity to get the promised pictures of the babies sunbathing and munching on the spring grass.

This is the best picture I could get of Crystal. She is so friendly that I think I'll need to get someone to take the pictures of her for me. Anyway this is her following me around the paddock.

Here's Xander enjoying the grass I really like how he is put together, he is super solid and an all around nice ram.

Cheyenne has become a real fan of attention and I always enjoy stroking her very soft fleece. I love the little white markings on the inside of her legs.

Celebration and Chloe are enjoying the same patch of grass.

Here is Cinnamon in a rare moment of not trying to sit in my lap.

Xavier is such a friendly guy and who could resist this face? His fleece is wonderfully soft and his little horns are so cute.

This is Cara enjoying the shade.

Hopefully we can stay cool today.

Ugly chicken phase

My chicks are four weeks old now and really um blossoming.

Here's Rosalie out Buff Orpington looking like she's part dinosaur.

Amber the Buff Chantecler who is a beautiful color.

Poor little Annabelle the bantam Buff Brahma with the gimpy leg. All the other chicks are super nice to her. We thought maybe it was splayed leg and tried to treat it but she won't put the leg down. She's a cutie anyway.

And the 3 silkies, Meredith, Izzie and Christina, who look like they have been shocked. They are so cute.

I love the chicks. They have grown so much already. I miss the fuzzy stage. That being said, I can't wait until they can move out to the coop. I just have to finish painting the coop lol. 

In shoulder news it's all quite confusing with first MRI saying there's a tear and will need surgery. The second MRI showing no tear and a cortisone shot should fix it just fine. I got the shot. Still waiting for it to feel better, but I do have a nifty click now every time I move my arm. Now I am seeking a second opinion.
