Our 9 1-day-old baby chicks! We officially own livestock! Woo Hoo!
I purchased 3 Plymouth Rocks (black chicks), 3 Buff Orpingtons (darker yellow chicks) and 3 Light Brahma (light yellow chicks). They are so adorable! They chirped pretty loudly for the first 20 minutes or so but are quieter now. The Plymouth Rocks went straight to the food once I put them in the brooder. These 2 Light Brahmas stood to the side and snuggled for awhile before finally venturing out. So far, so good. I am so excited for this new adventure!
