Momma Hen is Home with the Babies!





Finally made it home with the chicks and we have 54! One was dead upon arrival and one died soon after but the rest are healthy and doing great. William fixed a BIG box for them with sand in the bottom and 2 heat lamps so they are running around eating and drinking and I am having fun petting them. Dimples runs from the noise and Whiskers thinks I have brought a snack home for him. Don't worry we have cat proofed the box. Here are some photos of a few of the babies that would stand still. Will take better ones tomorrow after we have all had a rest.

Too cute. I wish I didn't live in city limits so I could have some chickens! Keep us posted on your chicken adventure!

So glad you and the baby chicks made it home safely. They are just darling balls of fluff.

I bet Norm would love them!

Awww, how sweet are these little chickies? I want some of my own! I've been trying to convince BJ that we should get another chookpen (we had one at our old house) but it isn't working, as he remembers doing most of the cleaning and feeding last time, hehe. Hope you are having fun with these little fellas!

It is fun to grow different plants in together. You might consider some companion planting (plants that do well together). You might even try a couple of mounds of the three sisters (corn, beans and squash) as our native ancestors taught us.)
