Though the temperatures have gone back to just barely above freezing again, spring has definitely arrived here on the homestead. Some of our flowers have started blooming and all the grass is now green and in need of mowing already. But the more fun aspect of spring is the arrival of new chicks.
We ordered our chicks from the feed store this year and our little box of mixed layer day-olds has just come in. That's the shipping box above, not their home! They are getting adjusted to the big brooder box that is now taking over the laundry room. I'll post a few more pics in a couple of days. Their cheeping is very happy-sounding in the house and they are already getting their wing feathers in.
My new camera takes great photos but the files are huge. Sorry if these take a long time to load. I should reducing them down before posting but I procrastinate enough as it is.
