Spring Surprise

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

Baby chicks… Buff Orpington baby chicks to be exact ๐Ÿ™‚ I am really excited about trying a new bread and these ladies are supposed to grow upย to be a nice brown/tan color.

We gotย 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 hadย Buff Orpington’s coming in I wasย a happy lady (I also wanted eater eggers, but they didn’t have them… maybe next year) ๐Ÿ˜‰ Box

Theย dogs seem to be enjoying the new ladies and are like me… theyย could watch the ladies for a long time. ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ ChicksI am so excited for new ladies to raise and get fresh eggs from and it helps after loosing aย lady the other week ๐Ÿ™‚ I will keep you updated on their progress and growth as well as their cuteness ๐Ÿ™‚

      They are suppose to lay light brown eggs… hopefully they will be different enough from our current brown egg layers, but if not that is fine too. I am just excited to see the pretty brown color they are supposed to be ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hej from Sweden!
    Oh soooo cute! We have Buff Orpingtons and they are so beautiful and fluffy. They reminded me of that cute kid’s story about Henny Penny so all my ladies are called Henny Penny. How fun to have cute babies.
    Have fun!

      I am hoping to have lots of fun with these ladies… they are good photo subjcts so far ๐Ÿ™‚ How cool you have buff’s too.. I heard they are more fluffy and soft then other egg laying breads. I know Henny Penny story and used to be able to recite it as a kid. How are your ladies about laying.. how often? They said they are supposed to lay as much as the rhode islands. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Buff Orpingtons are the best. I have one and she is the sweetest thing EVER! She follows me around like a puppy, enjoys being petted and even seems to like it when I hold her. She’s my best pet of the flock!

    Super cute, chicks are the absolute definition of cuteness. We had one of this breed too, but he turned into an aggressive rooster so he found a new home. Good luck with your little ones!

      They do stare Chase more then Baxter so I have to make sure he won’t get any wise ideas ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think he wants to play with them and since he can’t he just stares, looks at me, stares, wants a belly rub, then stares again ๐Ÿ˜‰

    SO cute! Thanks for sharing. I must admit that my Buff Orpingtons are my favorite hens in the flock. They are beautiful and have very friendly personalities.

      Thanks… the dogs have been through this once before with us and this time they seem more interested to watch them and not so much to lick them ๐Ÿ˜‰
