itty bitty friends

We went to an auction yesterday. It was not a rusty things auction, but a small animal/bird/poultry auction. They sell pigeons, chickens of all sorts, ducks, peacocks and rabbits. This is the second year we've attended this particular shin-dig. Last year we got frustrated and left early. This year we made it over half-way through and came home with a few new friends.

We bought the tiniest box with these little fellows in it. Can you guess what type of bird he is?


Hint: When we reenact the 12 days of Christmas he'll come in very handy.... so long as the pear trees survive the sudden chill and snow today.

Big D also got a little something, a furry little dwarf hamster. No word on a name for him just yet but he's very cute except for the red gleam in his beady eyes which totally freaks me out. Ah well, the kidlet actually cleaned his bedroom for the furry bugger so he can't be completely evil.
