Spring Surprise

Are you ready for the surprise I promised yesterday…. Baby chick Chick face

Baby chicks… Buff Orpington baby chicks to be exact 🙂 I am really excited about trying a new bread and these ladies are supposed to grow up to be a nice brown/tan color.

We got them at one of many feed stores we have been checking out to see who was going to get what bread in. When I heard this feed store had Buff Orpington’s coming in I was a happy lady (I also wanted eater eggers, but they didn’t have them… maybe next year) 😉 Box

The dogs seem to be enjoying the new ladies and are like me… they could watch the ladies for a long time.  I keep a good eye on them and they are not allowed in the room without my hubby or I just for safety reasons… even though they have both been though having baby chicks in the house before and get along well with those chickens now, you can never be too careful 🙂 Chase look Bax look

After we got them home they ate and drank right away and then took a nap.Chicks eat

I know some of you may have thought I was going to announce a human baby… no luck in that area yet, but baby chicks still fill a mom instinct when they are babies 🙂 ChicksI am so excited for new ladies to raise and get fresh eggs from and it helps after loosing a lady the other week 🙂 I will keep you updated on their progress and growth as well as their cuteness 🙂
