New Babies!

Baby chicks, that is. :) I've had chickens off & on over the last several years. The laying hens we have now are a little over 3 1/2 years old, and we're down to 6 of the original 12 chickens. They're still laying several eggs a week, but I decided it's time for another bunch of the little cuties to come join our homestead. This time, I chose Buff Orpingtons because they're friendly, good mothers (I'm always hoping we'll get a rooster & be able to raise our own chicks), and good both for laying eggs and for roasting & eating. Besides that, they're really cute! I bought them last night; they're just two weeks old:
