Yesterday the girls went downtown with their grandma. When they walked back to our house, I noticed that they were each holding a clear plastic bag. Inside Emily's was something blue and inside Bella's was something yellow.
I asked what they had and they held up the bag and showed me two little chicks.
What are we going to do with these two chicks? The blue is a nice size. Ready to leave the "nest". The yellow one, on the other hand, is so tiny still. He can't even keep himself warm. I don't think they should have sold him yet.
Last night it was like having a newborn again. I got up throughout the night and kept checking on the crying yellow one. I put a heating pad in a box for him so he wouldn't freeze to death. We don't really play with him because he is just too little. And, for being so little, he sure is quick.
The blue one is ultra friendly. If you put him on the ground, he will run towards your feet. If you put your hand out, he will run and jump in the palm of your hand. And, of course, when you set him back down in the box, he cries like a baby. Right now he is in the closet because his chirps are so loud.
Now to figure out if we are keeping these guys or what. I read on-line how to care for them. If we are keeping them, when Jorge gets home, we are going to have to make a trip to the store to get supplies and proper equipment for them.
