Babies!!! (Not For Eating)


(If you are reading this on an RSS feed, click through to see the slideshow.)
They’re finally here! After what seemed like an eternity of waiting, Papa Squirrel and I have new babies! By winter, these eight lovely little girls (Fricassee, Marsala, Kiev, Satay, Dumplin’, Della, Karen, and Sam) are going to be providing us with eggs enough to share. They’re only two days old, and they already seem to have their own personalities. And don’t worry, they’re not spoiled at all.

Wait… Is that cheeping…? I gotta go!

    Are you allowed to do that in Memphis?

    We looked it up. As long as they aren’t a “nuisance”, we can have them. For us, nuisance meant a rooster crowing. We only want the eggs, so we didn’t want roosters anyway.

    While we were waiting to get them we found out that someone within a block or two of our nice midtown house does have roosters. Theirs don’t bug us, but we didn’t want to take a chance on bugging someone ourselves.

    Will happily trade tomatoes for fresh eggs later in the summer. 🙂

    Congrats on the poultry!

    Cheers,

    wow! you named a chicklet after me. I am so honoured. I really can’t remember if I have answered your email yet – I am weeks behind and won’t be able to catch up for quite some time. Thanks for your patience, and if I already replied then I am a dingbat as well as a chicklet.

    WOW I GOT TO BE A CHICKEN YAY, Tell me again which one am I? I know it’s something insulting, like I’m the dork brand or something.

    CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, Karen, you are the Silver Grey Dorking. She’s actually going to be a very pretty chicken when she grows up. She already has your personality. She is very feisty.

    Sam is going to be the most beautiful. She’s a Golden Wyandotte.

    Actually, there are two chickens named after Sam if you count Dumplin’. Or is that Fred? 🙂
