That's what I want to say when I see this one eyed Mummy, or just the googlies in general. They all wiggle on the package. Too cute.
For my downline shoebox swap the theme was a set from the Holiday Catalog, so I turned to one of my favorite girls to case Ilina Crouse and found this cute card. Thanks Ilina!

So the chicks are 5 weeks old now and I am perplexed whether I put Alice and the chicks with the other girls. They have seen each other a few weeks now through the chicken wire, I don't wanna wait too long cause then I think Alice will be done with them and not protect them. I have heard wait till they are not saying cheep cheep cheep, and that they are big enough to protect themselves, but I think that is talking about chicks you hatch in an incubator, not chicks that have a Mum. I have a website I go to called Backyard Chickens and they say put them together now. But I am worried they won't be able to get up to roost at night, plus they still seem to be sleeping under Alice or at least around her. Man what will I be like when Eric moves out?
So I am not sure I will do it tomorrow, do I stick them in now so I have a week and half to watch over them before Founder's Circle or do I wait till I get back and then they will be around 8 weeks old. I think Clara will be the one picking on them and if she does I will put her in the pen that Alice and the babies have been in for a couple days. Maybe they will all go "oh look at the cute chicks lets all welcome to the family and we will all be mothers".So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Well this old chick..ha!ha! has to hit the hay, I wanna get up early. Jeff made a new ladder thing for the girls to get up into the nesting box, so that when we add the new chicks, they will have a place to climb and roost on as there is not room for everyone where they roost now. I was out there like a mother hen (yikes!) watching them test it out…am hoping no one breaks anything coming down in the morning. I did leave the back of the nesting box open so they could hop out that way.
Have an awesome Monday and let's hope I am just wasting a worry. Thanks for stopping in.
Put them in … Alice will take good care of them. They will be fine because Alice has been raised with them.
I love the mummy stamp… especially with the googly eyes… makes me chuckle every time I see it.
Well I know you're gonna make the right decision about the babies and Alice. Maybe ask the man that you got the eggs from?
Thanks for the card idea and the chx update….
