Our first batch of chicks have arrived - 8 of them -
4 barred rock females
1 barred rock male
3 silver laced wyandot females.
And don't ask me which is which yet....
It was fun picking them up from the hatchery - although I went after work and before picking up the kids.
Now comes the hard part - keeping Tyler from carrying them around the farm in his pocket (he's afraid they are going to get lonely, be picked on, be sad...you get the general idea). Hopefully it won't be too cold for them outside at night the next few nights (they are surrounded by cardboard with a heat lamp clamped to one side in the buckeye barn turned chicken coop).
Also - my Mom has started a blog - Country Chicken - click on over and say hello.
