Meet the Babies

Barred Rock

We brought home eight chicks this week!  Amabel and Ellen have been getting to know their babies (they just hatched on Monday!), watching them, snuggling them, and naming them.  We have two Barred Rock chicks: Fuzzy and Sleepy;

Isa Brown

Two Isa Brown chicks: Cheepa and Isa;

Australorp

Two Australorp chicks: Star and Pingu;

Buff Orpington

And two Buff Orpington chicks: Ling and Ting.

Delighted!

Harry is both curious and puzzled.  On one hand, he already seems protective of the little balls of fuzz.  On the other hand, I'm sure he'd like to eat a few chicken nuggets for dinner.  So we're keeping a close watch on all the animals over here as everyone adjusts to the newest additions!
