On impulse this weekend we decided to purchase some little chickies. The kids are loving them. Now we should have enough eggs each day to keep up with our size famiy. 2 to 3 a day wasn't cutting it - especially when the hens eat some of them before we can grab them.
Madi with one of the one week old chicks. This is a Rhode Island Red. She will be a pretty dark red when she gets older.
This is a two week old Barred Rock. These are my favorite because they come out a really pretty black and white stripe. With their red comb, it looks really cool.
This is the oldest of our chicks. She is six weeks old. Kind of the ugly duckling now but she will be beautiful.We all go through an awkward stage don't we?
The look on this chicks face makes you wonder what she's thinking with these two chicks asleep on her back end.
