Our newest peeps have arrived! They are so, so cute! They *peep-peeped* the whole drive from the post office to our house! After getting ours situated in the shed, we took the rest out to my mom's house. She ordered some, as did a couple of her neighbors and my uncle!
It will probably be a difficult task, keeping the children out of the shed...for they are already in love with these little gals!
Madelyn picked out one of Grammie's chicks and decided she loved it *most* and snuggled it under her coat, close to her, to keep it warm on the drive out to my mom's.
We get Comet chickens. They lay nice, brown eggs. They won't lay for a while though. They are newly hatched and honestly, just as *cute* as can be! (Be glad you can't smell through the computer screen, though...they are awfully stinky! ;)
We are hoping they all do well and survive these days of youngness. They can die if not cared for properly! We love our new girls...our "family" grew by leaps and bounds today!
