Chicks!

We picked up 9 baby chickens at the local Wilco on Tuesday evening. They’re now safely ensconsed in the bathrub in the spare bathroom… a nice dirt and pine shaving floor to play with, and a nice warm heat lamp to keep them toasty. We have 2 Red Chantecler, 2 Light and 2 Buff Brahmas, 2 Black Sex Link, and one that I think was a Brown Leghorn.

9 babies all curled into a corner of their travel box. They spent the ride home singing sleepy songs to each other, it was pretty cute.

Being babies, naptime is still pretty much the highest priority.

…although there is occasionally time for adventuring.

Samhain just KNOWS there’s something worth seeing on the other side of this door.
