Baby Chicks Again

So cool to be a daddy again . . . 12 babies this time. This early batch of babies is made up of 2 Golden Sexlinks, 4 White leghorns, 4 Buff Orpingtons, and 4 Rhode Island Reds. All are healthy as can be, but I was worried about one of the Leghorns for a number of hours. The poor little thing must have just been worn out, lively as can be now, scratching around with the rest of them.

Sure do love baby chicks, but then, who doesn't? Judging by the crowd at the feed store their popularity is continuing to grow. Someone came in ahead of me and bought all 100 Barred Rocks, so I won't be getting mine until the next order comes in, but that's okay.

So, how about you? Getting any new chickens for Spring and the summer shows?
