New Babies

I admit it, I'm weak! I heard their little chirps when I walked into the farm store today. Ernie needed some part he forgot for our new water pump so he headed in that direction. When he found me, I had picked out 3 new to us breeds of chicks. I brought home 2 Blue Andalusians, 2 Light Brahmas and 2 Speckled Sussex.

We came home, let them settle for a while and then introduced the dogs to their new family members. Each time I check on the chicks, I pick them up and let the dogs smell them. The babies are now settled into their new home, eating and drinking and napping under their light. I can't wait to introduce the grandkiddos to the babies.

They are darling, and nothing says "spring" like baby chicks.

so cute-reminded me of going w/my dad to the feed store (for the horses) and in the back they'd sometimes have chicks...no amount of pleading worked but I loved to go and see them!

Adorable! They remind me of when we were newlyweds (decades ago!) and were taken with the cutest little lilac-colored baby chicks in the 5 & 10 cent store. We brought one home that promptly died in spite of all the TLC we gave it. I now realize that it was probably dyed that lilac color for the spring season, and it probably wasn't my lack of good care that killed it. Animal cruelty for sure.

This brings back childhood memories! Baby chicks are hard to resist. Guess you know that by now. lol

What?!? Okay, I'm through laughing. Have fun and keep us posted. I had chicks as a child but convinced my older sister to care for them. LOL

Oh, they are beautiful! My son sent me some chicks - mailorder from McMurray, I think they were called? - when he went 1,300 miles away to college so that I wouldn't feel unhappy with the 'empty nest'. . . Well, that was over 12 years ago and now that they are grown and gone, and the coop is empty, seeing those chicks makes me want to start all over again!
