The Duke and Duchess came home last weekend with a box full of
snacks treats baby chicks for me the castle!
Some of them were yellow.
And some of them were black.
Higgins thought they smelled really good.
He was thinking they might taste as good as they smell!
There were even two brown ones.
I was very excited.
I love getting new subjects at the castle.
Especially if they don't bark.
I knew they were mine. No doubt.
They are living in a box right now in the Dungeon. The Duke calls it a brooder. He is building them their own house for when they get bigger. That one will be outside in the fresh air. They will be protected from the rain though because the Duke says Chickens don't like to get their feet wet. Wow, that's kind of picky don't you think? For goodness sakes, it rains all the time here! (Well, almost!)
In any case, I think life just got a whole lot more interesting!
