First the Chick

It's time for more chickens!
Picking out new chicks was a much anticipated event.

Each of the kids picked one out so we came home with four baby chicks in a box.

We got them settled in their box in the garage.

These three love to check on them in the mornings and give them some snuggles. 

Our current chickens are slowing down on their egg production so we will be really glad in a few months (up to 6 months) when these guys start laying their eggs.
One of our new chicks is an Ameraucana and will lay blue eggs!
