Okay, it’s not me pooping rainbows, it’s the chickens. And thanks to them we’ve got rainbows scattered all over this darned house. But they’re cuuuute, so we’ve forgiven them.
Oh, and there are dogs in these pics too. With all this adorable who needs commentary? I’ll totally keep it to captions. Now say hello to Penny.
Penny can really shake a tail feather.
Watch her break it down. Go Penny.
This is little dude loving on Penny. And that might be Penny trying to escape his vice grip.
And yes, the kid is sporting painted fingernails. Since I have to keep this to a caption, let it suffice to say that we had our two almost-family-nieces sleep over and as soon as the dads left for dinner the kids begged me for rainbow manicures. How could I say no? To rainbows??? See, you just can’t.
And this is Penny’s first introduction to Elvis. Off camera is a massive puddle of drool. Elvis looked hungry but managed to behave himself.
This is probably my favorite picture of the whole batch. The look on that dog’s face makes me trust him completely and totally with the life of that tiny chick. And rainbow nails, of course, always there to make the world a brighter place.
More good behavior.
This is the point at which Frankie realized there was a rumpus int he kitchen and joined us. Here are the boys about to lick the snot out of Zippy.
And Frankie, looking remorseful and confused.
This is big brother with his speckled Easter Egger named Rosie. She is the sweetest and most willing to cuddle in the group. Perfect for him.
I can’t ever take enough pictures of little hands at work. Love them.
Here’s the top of Rosie’s sweet head.
The little guy had to get in on the snuggles too. He turned four in April, but this photo could be from when he was two years old. Still the same baby profile, awwwww.
Is kissing chickens sanitary?
Before I could google the answer to that question the light coming through the windows got really beautiful just as little dude caught a wasp in a jar, and a moment later Rosie ended up on top of it. Well hello, perfect shooting conditions!
This one is actually more perfect – note the tiny hands.
I don’t have a snappy transition into this next series except to say that I swapped out chicks and Bell seemed to be feeling sassy.
She climbed straight up to little dude’s mug.
Pecked at him a bit.
Stared longingly into his eyes.
Seriously Bell, can I thank you enough? I would pay big money to bottle that laughter.
It was all so funny that big bro joined us.
And we all cackled about it for a few minutes.
In the midst of it all Bell posed stoically for this photo, then proceeded to poop on little dude’s shoulder. She must have sensed his love of rainbows.
And that’s all I have to say about that for tonight. Here’s one for goodbye.
