A New Addition

Well, we gained a new addition today. Joshua and Zachary have been wanting a dog forever, so, we bit the bullet, and Joshua got a baby chick. Yup, you got it, we have a pet. The chick is a girl, whose name is George. Joshua's choice in the name, what do I know. They had 20 chicks hatch at school and he turned in a permission slip from me, and we have a 5 day old chick.

Anyway, George is a cutie, so furry and does not need to go out for walks, easy to feed, he/she is just such a pleasure to have around the house. Of course, we have already found a family for George when he/she grows a little older and bigger and outgrows the box. Hopefully, we'll have a couple of pictures to show you. For now, George is resting comfortably, and so are we.

Actually George squawks, then settles down and when you hold George and rub the side of the wings, George just nestles in your hand and relaxes.

Oh the calming effect I have on chicks... {:-)
