...our chicks...

we decided to embark on raising chickens this spring.
unfortunately, our little birds were lost in transit for an extra day and i was fearing for the worst.
we ordered 15 plymoth barred rock hens.
we have lost two (the company shipped an extra) so now have 13.

steve was gone over the weekend and they unfortunately arrived while he was away. i took quite a few videos to send him. their enthusiasm was precious. fortunately, the post office called at 6AM and told me of their arrival. the kids were in the car with out a peep. we spent the morning with them, pajamas and all.

they have spent hours staring at them, holding them and talking about them. they will be garage residents for a few more weeks and will then move to their coop.
