John has worked hard to attract certain birds to the property and with a little help from the owner of Wild Bird's Unlimited he was successful in inviting bluebirds to nest!  I don't know a thing about
bluebirds and have never seen them before this Spring so it is a real treat.  It was a bit of a battle to keep the sparrows out as we had to evict them as they started building their eclectic nests, much different then the pine needle nests that the bluebirds make.

Ah!  Success.  We hope they all hatch.

Since we have a plethora of dog hair at the kennel we share with the other birds.  I was thrilled to see the chickadees being so 'green.'  This nest box is right outside our bedroom window.

9 weeks old

They grow so fast!

I stand corrected...

Take note, folks.  It's not often I admit that I am wrong but can you believe my baby black tort buck turned into a doe between weeks 4 and 6?  I hate when that happens.

It's been a while so here are some pictures to keep you updated on the buns and how much they have grown.

Play time in a quick crete tube.

Time to feed the kids!

"What is going on here?  This is not our usual house."

And lastly this is 400 yards of Chu's I'm Too Sexy drying in another unseasonably warm day in Dayton.  Sadly, Too Sexy passed away a couple of weeks ago and I felt compelled to reminisce over all the wonderful fiber she gifted me with.  I was thrilled to acquire Too Sexy from Betty from the Michigan convention several years ago.  Brian Hartzell transported her back the Dayton area after the convention, I didn't know him personally but he certainly left a positive impression on the rabbit community in big and small ways such as this.  I was always thoughtful of him in regards to Too Sexy.

This current litter are Chu's Too Sexy grand babies.  May they be as beautiful as she was.
