Her name is Lucy (pictured). She’s about 48 hours old.
She chirps a lot.
She chirps very loudly.
Today I was home alone with her, and our new puppy, Emma. I was in the back room. I heard some noise in the living room, and I sat at my desk trying to determine what it might have been. And then I thought: It’s probably Emma. She’s probably . . .
TRYING TO EAT THE CHICKS.
I dashed into the living room. Emma looked guilty.
I put her in the back yard. Holly told me she has seen Emma licking her chops as Lucy chirps away.
Right now everything is quiet. The living room is awash in a red glow from the heat lamp. There are two new chicks in the house. I don’t know the other girl’s name for sure, but I think it might be Bill.
Chicks are too cute.
