6 month old baby

Our baby is now 6 months old! He is changing so much everyday. The first year of life is incredible.

If anything comes near him he grabs it with a death grip , talons, usually he gets you by the hair and pulls you in to his mouth, chews on your nose... it is a good technique because the hair pulling hurts so you submit. He's got it figured out.
Now he likes to sit in this almost sitting position. He is often straighter but in these photos he was getting tired...The deck has been awesome...seeing a lot more strange birds about...

Today we brought 3 of our older sussex hens across the river to "the chicken killer" as we like to say. We were going to do in the 6 oldest ones but because they are still laying and we'll have some extra visiting people around this summer we kept the kinder of the flock. So we ate Pecker for lunch, haha. She was chewy. Joel spits in the face of the 100 mile diet, he is all about the 10 foot diet. Good one, JB!

We opened up the chicks area into the big hen area and are crossing our fingers for no conflict. So far so good.

I figured out how to change some settings on this blog, so everyone can leave a comment! Hope to hear from y'all!


  1. Oh Sev is getting to be such a big boy! That sure happens soooo fast. I can't wait to meet him and have him pull my hair! haha!

  2. phew, glad i am back in! i would not live without this lifeline to your photos :)

  3. These aunties need to meet this young man! I know it'll be this year on ultimate high speed or what? Well we hope to visit our families both east and west this year anyhow.

  4. Wow, Seve seems to have progressed so much even since our visit at the beginning of the month. I think he's anxious to get in there with his brothers!
    I love your blog, thanks for the frequent postings-they make my day!
