New Chicks

I took the plunge and bought six baby chicks yesterday. One container had straight run (little bit of everything, both pullet and cockerel chicks), and another container had assorted reds (again, pullet and cockerel both). I'm not ready for a roo yet, so I picked from a third container marked 'assorted pullets', so goodness knows what I have. I'm assuming they're sex-link of some variety, perhaps gold.

The chicks are temporarily housed in a cardboard box inside the dog crate so Molly and Jethro can't hurt them. Molly's mouth is watering and I'm sure she'd like a little snack.

You'll be seeing more of these cute little chicks in the days to come, and I'm sure I'll be needing help in identify what breed they might be.

Awwwww, so cute.

They look like our red sex-links did when they were chicks but then again you can never really tell.

We will be getting some more baby chicks in the next few weeks and are even going to try geese this year.

Have fun with these little critters!

Nothing is any cuter than a fuzzy little yellow chick.

I'm surprised the seller didn't know what they were selling. Good luck!
