Chick Heaven!

The babies are here!

For those of you who can and want to see them in person, the little ladies are going to have an Audience on Saturday afternoon from 3 – 5 pm. There won’t be as many of them here since a friend is coming to pick some of them up this afternoon, but there will still be four or five little cuties to pass around. Let me know if you’re planning to attend.

This is the box they were shipped in - all arrived healthy and alert!

I checked with our mail carrier yesterday afternoon and he assured me no chicks had arrived for us that day. So it came as quite a surprise to get a phone call at 5:50 from the post office, saying that they would be closing in ten minutes and I needed to come get my chicks. Yikes! Good thing I have a lead foot and know the back way to the post office!

Hanging out at the water cooler

The CE and I dipped their beaks in the water and showed them their food, and in no time the ten little beauties were eating, drinking and pooping up a storm.

The large dark one on the left is a Black Copper Marans; they are French birds known for laying chocolate-y brown eggs

These little munchkins are Belgian Mille Fleur D'Uccles - they will be gorgeous bantams

I think this is an Easter Egger (like Autumn) but not 100% sure

That extremely precious little girl on the right is a Silkie! So excited to have that little fluff ball!

There will be more (probably endless) pix later but wanted to let everyone know right away that they arrived safely.

    Sign me up for a 3:00 pm and zero seconds arrival on Saturday!

    Will there be a blog-naming contest?

    Oh my goodness they are precious. I can’t wait to see them in real life!

    Step right up Ladies and Gentlemen! For only a nominal fee you too can witness these latest additions to God’s great creation. Such a bunch of clueless, rambling, drifting aimless two footers is hard to replicate this side of Washington D.C. Hard to tell the winners from the losers without a program, also yours for a small fee. The Gutsche Critter Circus again opens its doors today at 3 pm so bring the kiddies and your wallet for the best enterainment value this side of the Mississippi.
