We had a pretty intense heat wave here for several days. Our 4th of July was very quiet. We had a water balloon fight, cooked out and went to see the city fireworks display. It was too hot for much else. The poor chickies were not
happy with the heat either.
. The chickies derserved a little treat. I think watermelon may be the new favorite.
The kids were lounging on the lawn chairs. The chickens were sitting next to them just as relaxed as could be. They really seemed to enjoy having the watermelon held for them as they pecked away. The chickens are sure to end up as spoiled as everything else around here. I am sure of that!
I was gigglin' when this was taking place. I'm still gigglin' as I look through the photos. These chickens really are acting like royalty here! Closest in the photo is Big Buck. He was the biggest, strongest bird in the beginning.
In the background is Sparrow.
