Chicks

With thoughts of spring coming, comes thoughts of new chickens. And when you go into a store that has chicks, the urge to buy them is overwhelming! Of course I HAD to give in to that urge!

The "first" set I bought, I bought in error. For some reason I had straight runs mixed up with pullets. Straight runs and unsexed and pullets "should be" females. So my little black chicks are going to be a tossup.

The "second" set of chicks I bought "should be" all females. And hopefully they are the same as what I got last year, because I love my buff orffington. Only time will tell. The dog still loves them though.

This picture cracks me up. I'm not sure if it's a "are you my momma" standoff or a "dude, get out of our food" standoff.

Chicks are just adorable!

She really wanted nothing to do with them, just their food. I swear she's a pig in a hen costume.
