Chirps From The Barnyard #1

(Be sure to read my post on the Father-Daughter retreat below this one!)

Our baby chicks are here!!! They are adorable, sweet, fluffy, chirpy, tiny, soft, wonderful, enchanting, cute little things!
They're nice and warm in their little brooder box. We have some heat lamps on them to keep them nice and toasty... baby chicks thrive in warm temperatures. The green stuff you might spot in their food is called "Grow-gel", and it's some special vitamins to help them get some extra nutrients.
We have a variety of mixed breeds, but they're all brown egg layers and they're all hens. (How you can tell, when they're that little, is beyond me... but this company is great, we've ordered from them before, so I'm sure they'll be what we need... hens!) :)
And they just love being held in warm, caring hands.
Can everybody say "Awwwwww...."?
