Baby chicks

The newest members of our family arrived this morning.  We are the proud parents of four new baby chickens.  At 6:00 A.M the phone rang loudly, and we knew who was on the other line.  The post office was calling to let us know that our baby chicks were ready to be picked up.  Looking outside you would never think that this was the time to start raising chickens.  We received a dangerous mixture of rain and snow last night.  Neither rain, sleet, or snow will keep these precious chickens from coming to their new home.  We arrived safely home and immediately put the new babies into their new brooder.  We are hopeful that these new babies will grow into happy life loving, healthy chickens.  The new chicks were vaccinated for Mareks disease.  So fingers crossed that they will never contract it.

Here are some pics of the newest members to our family.

As you look at these~ do any names come to mind?  We originally wanted iconic female music artists, but we'd take names from songs too.


  1. I love reading about your chickens! I am so glad for you and your new chicks!

  2. Thank you! They are very sweet. Peeping in the background as I write this.
