Say hello to the babies!

Yep, it's that time of year again!
Baby Chicks!

 We got 12 new babies and right now they are living in my dining room in a plastic bin.
We have them all set up with "chick starter" feed, water and a heat lamp.

I could sit and play with them all day, they are so soft and cute!

What cuteness! I don't think I can take care of little cuties like this though :(

Thanks for the pics; they brightened my afternoon :)

They are so cute. My husband and I are considering getting some chicks this week too. It would be a Big 1st step for us. I'm a little nervous!

Aww, I love chickens! I miss having chooks - always had them when I was growing up but can't have them at the moment - renting! :( Yours are so cute!

Oooh, I want some! When we get home I'll have to pick your brain about keeping chickens!

So cute! My father-in-law owns a feed store, and they have Chick Day every year... it's when the chicks arrive and everyone comes to pick up their order of baby chicks. There are tons of them!
