New Spring Chicks

Well, I guess I better start this off by saying, if you’re not in the mood to see an overload of adorable chick photos, you best click away now because we’re about to have a serious Chick-Fest in the house. Last Friday, we brought home 5 new girls and have been smitten ever since. We added 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Americaunas and 1 Plymouth Barred Rock to our flock. Names are mostly undetermined but the black one is getting very close to being named Coco.

As you can see, our sweet Bella has made fast friends with the new girls and has maintained her role as the chicken wrangler. They all seemed very interested in her!

We’re so happy to be adding the new chicks to our little urban farm!

And in the spirit of full disclosure, I must tell you that we lost 3 of our hens. Ruby got very ill and Marshmallow and Souffle were attacked. It was really sad and there were some tears shed. Being a “farmer” isn’t always sunshine and daisies. It was surprising how attached we got to our girls and their quirky, fun personalities. We know that our new little hens will give us just as much joy and will be happy to be greeted with our daily veggie treats!

PS. For those of you who might be new to the blog, our chickens live here.
