Chicks: Redux

These week we received a beautiful assortment of chicks (to replace those we sadly lost earlier this summer), and they are just the fluffiest, cutest things.  The first set we ordered through Amherst Farmers Supply; the second we special ordered through MyPetChicken.  I was very pleased with the chicks and service from both.
Our newest arrivals: black austrolorp, buff orpington, speckled sussex, silver-laced wyandotte, buckeye.

I have eight (two of which I'm holding for a friend) of these little chicks peeping and scampering all day long, except when they're peacefully sleeping.  I could sit and watch them and listen to their cooing and scrabbling all day.
They arrived fresh on Tuesday and have already noticeably grown and gained weight.  They are curious and active and healthy and already scratching at food and perching, and even have yogurt fights! 
More to come~
