Baby chicks

After we failed at hatching chicks in the incubator a few months ago, my dad offered to buy some chicks for us. After some time thinking about it, I finally decided to go ahead and get some chicks. We ordered them from this site. I like the way they describe the birds and how the site is organized. It was easy to use.
We now have 30+ chicks in my laundry room! They arrived yesterday. The majority are Red Star, the two black ones are Buff Orpingtons, and a few rare chicks that they added for free. The kids are all excited, and I am, too. I enjoy raising animals and my gardening. I used to tell my parents I wanted to live on a farm. My dad, who grew up on a farm, told me it was too much work and that I wouldn't like it. He is probably right. The animals and garden that I have now take enough of my time. I don't think I want much more right now. Here are pictures of the cute little fur balls.

Oh, those are cute! Our kids would be so jealous, they have been begging for chicks for years. When we had chickens before, I bought grown pullets.
