~ Six Little Chicks ~

Saturday , Dh picked up our laying hens. I didn't get to make the trip as planned , Little Froggy and Curious J were staying with me , so their Dad could attend a funeral.

The chicks were smaller than I thought they would be , but oh ...... sooo cute. Curious J loved them , he wanted to hold one. He helped put food in their tray and enjoyed watching them. Little Froggy just stood back and watched big brother.

I think we have 3 Black Australorps , 1 Rhode Island Red , 1 Buff Orpington and a Plymouth Barred Rock. It will be awhile before they start laying eggs , maybe July although I hope sooner. I will be giving them names , but I think I'll wait and see what their personalities reveal.

After we came out of the chicken coop , Pa challenged Curious J to try to catch a guinea and the chase was on , but Nana had to put a halt to that. Little Froggy got brave later and decided he wanted to catch a guinea too , so cute (LOL).

We had a wonderful time with the Grands Saturday , they always bring a smile to our faces. Curious J saw my gardening beds that Pa had made and decided he needed one for a sandbox , so Pa has new project to work on (LOL) , between Curious J and I , we keep him busy.

Hope everyone has a good day , need to get off the computer , let the guineas out , feed the chicks , bunny and dogs. I'm trying to get my Spring cleaning done before the nice weather comes , because I'll want to be outside then.

Oooooo those little chicks are so cute. I wish they were also at my house. One day... soon I hope, I'll have hens again. Your weather seems pretty nice in those pictures from the weekend. Although, we had a nice weekend, we still have loads of snow on the ground. And I'm with you about getting the Spring cleaning done now so I can head outside when the weather is nicer.

You can just see the joy in
Curious J's face trying to
catch a guiena. LOL Froggy
trying to catch one too. So

Make sure they keep those
chicks away from their eyes.
I had one try to peak one of
my eyes when I was a kid.

God Bless You and Yours!!!
