We have baby chicks at our house! We got a flock of Barred Rocks this time, 6 in total, hopefully all hens. Barreds are black with white spots, a beautiful gentle bird that lays nice brown eggs. Here's Gretel getting their feeder ready on the big day.
The coop is under construction. Below is Casey on day one.
And today it progresses further.
The girlies are growing fast! Gretel likes to watch them and her enthusiastic hollering often scares them a little. They will get used to that pretty quickly I'll bet!
