Bringing Home The Chicks.

Thanks for all your comments regarding the title of my last post.
I wonder how many people were disappointed when they opened it.

So here they are, 200 one day old chickens.


The whites, Leghorn cross New Hampshires,

the blacks, Australorp cross New Hampshires,

and the browns, Gingerhams.


Once we have finished oohhing and aahhhing over them they go into their freshly fitted out house. 

We put the boxes under the lights and cut the boxes apart until they are flat.

Some of the chickens are adventurous straight away.

While others haven't even opened their eyes yet.


It's not long before all the colours begin to mix.


Better not forget to shut the door hey Pixie.

Internally I'm a four year old again, these pics make me feel very nice. I'd love to have chooks again. For the kids sake of course.
