Ashley let her chicks out for a little sunshine run last weekend. They were having the time of their life! Well, second to eating the worm from my garden. More on that later too!

Oh My Gosh! My Daughter is a Freak!
OK - so I'm sitting at my daughter's laptop typing my post for tonight and she stops to talk to me. We are simply having a random thoughts conversation. Then the conversation turn serious...we were talking about her chicks.
Me: "I think your chicks are sleeping too much. They are all cuddled together in the middle of the day. They should be up pooping and making messes."
Daughter: "Mom, they are like babies. It's OK for them to sleep a lot. They need to."
Random ramblings...then we get to the good / my daughter is a freak part...
Daughter: "My chicks are already developing fine. Mrs. M's chicks are only like a week younger than mine and hers only have like 3 tail feathers and mine have like 8."
WHAT THE HECK KIND OF FREAKY KID COUNTS THE TAIL FEATHERS?
Tail feathers people ~ the feathers on a chicks butt! OK - see, this is one of the reasons I didn't homeschool her. She would totally not be socially accepted. This is also why we send her far away to the city each day to attend high school. OK - not quite to "The City", but it is definitely a bigger town than what we live in!
[Oh - another scary thought...she not only counts the tail feathers of her chicks (possibly understandable considering the amount of time she spends with them), but she is counting the tail feathers of someone else's chicks!!! Is that legal?]
Hey Ashley, if you are the type of person to count tail feathers...does that mean you are checking out guys "tails" at school? Come on...it's mom...you can tell me! I promise...I will type it to myself...(blog world ~ I'll keep you posted).
These are wings ~ not tailfeathers. I took these picts last week. I took more picts of the chicks today (will post later...) and holy cow they have grown! Can't wait for you guys to see them!
