Happy Birthday Chooks!
The chooks are officially one year old today. They were hatched on April 13, 2008. They're not pullets anymore, now they're hens.
So much happens in the first year of a chicken's life that it's hard to keep track of all the milestones. They start out as tiny little puffballs of fuzz.
Then they get all their feathers and start looking like big chickens instead of gangly teenagers.
And then come those first little pullet eggs.
Chickens are a fun family project that everyone can get involved in. I never realized how much fun chickens could be. And there's nothing like having your own fresh eggs every day.
