How cute. I had to laugh when I got my order a few months ago, I could hear the peeping over the phone when the post office called me...

Oh my, now I need to get our chicken house planned so that we can order chicks!

And that seems to be one of the best companies. I am sure they will replace your loses. It is just good policy.

God bless you for having them in your house. I will never ever do that again. It took me forever to get my house un-dusty and dirty for 30 chicks. I am a big fan of chicks. Just not in my house.

The new batch will go in a brooder in my garage.

I love the chicks too but I am interested in finding out more about buying some of your wool. Is that still a possibility?

Cute overload!

So I hear that when you get your chicks, the first thing you have to do is dip their little beaks in the water so they know where it is (they're thirsty from their trip) and then show them the feed.

Is that what you do?

How exciting! Can't wait to experience that myself! Much health and happiness to all your chicks!

And then you have to watch for pasting up. Cleaning their little butts is kind of funny.
I just ordered turkey poults from the same hatchery you used. They are the best.

Oh how I wish we were getting chicks this year. Our coop will be maxed out this summer. I miss the peeping. When we got our first chicks last spring, my hubby joked that I was spending more time just watching the chicks, than I was with the family. I loved just sitting and watching them. One evening I sat with my arms up on the sides of the box watching them for so long that my arms fell asleep. heehee, ok, maybe I did have a little bit of an addiction to them. :)

How wonderful, brings back fond memories of holding chicks in my hands as a little girl. What breeds did you get?

So sweet! I am envious! Where did you order your babies?

Just watched the second video. My "potluck" polish was a seemly weak chick. He got picked on mercilessly by the other roosters (chicks). I thought he wouldn't make it. But he is healthy and strong and the only rooster I kept. I would never again get just one polish and I would keep the polish separate while feathering in... especially if being picked on but they are fun and easy to handle chickens.

Hope yours make it. I know you picked them out specifically... couldn't talk the husband into getting a few girls. Maybe next year.

I so enjoy your blog and follow it faithfully. I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada now but was born and brought up outside of Schenectady, NY so always know where you are talking about. The pony is about 15 minutes from where I lived!

So enjoyed seeing the new baby's, hearing the tales of your animals and all the adventures you go through. I still recall you blog re finding a husband. I do hope it won't be too long until someone special see's what a strong amazing woman you are.

Be well.
