Surprise!! I’m a new mom again!

Jul 6, 2011

Soooo...I got a call from the post office this morning that I had baby chicks waiting for me. WHAT??? This was a back order from 6 months ago that I'd cancelled a while back. For whatever reason, they shipped the chicks anyway. Yikes!! Well, what do you can't ship them back...So, I ran back at lunch to pick them up and then set up a new brooder for them right quick.


I'll be raising these three little babies for a while. Two are Polish hens and I'm not sure what the other one is just yet (Just figured out it's probably a Cochin, either blue or black...which I MUST have! lol). I really only have room for one more chicken...two more would be pushing it. But, it's going to be really hard not to get attached to these little munchkins. So, I may have a couple of specialty breeds that will need a new home in a bit...I'll keep you posted!

Eek!  What a surprise!  Having grown up on a chicken farm, I have no desire to raise them in my near retirement, but my DH would absolutely love that kind of surprise LOL. However, his wife has said “Not a chance!”  But I have to admit, the most fun of raising chickens was when the new little ones arrived!

Enjoy!  They are too cute!
