New Baby Chicks Have Arrived!

March 12, 2015

It's gotten to be that time again when I need to replenish my backyard 15 new babies have arrived!  Six or seven of them will stay with me, the rest will have another home after I've raised them up a bit and taught them some manners. Here are some portraits at 3 days old. As always, too cute.

Super excited about this new breed - Blue Favaucana. Hybrid of Faverolles and Ameraucanas, two of my favorite breed. Gorgeous!
