Chickens...Take Two...

With an early morning call, we received our replacement chickens.  

The last post, Baby Chicks...a Sad Day..., told of an unknown force that killed our baby chicks before they had been with us 24 hours.  We're still not sure what killed them, but there's enough small varmint poison to keep it from happening again.  Mice, rats, or chipmunks are no match for the great taste of colored poison...

We were extremely lucky that our hatchery had enough to replace the ones we lost.  To say they were accommodating would be a complete understatement!  They were not only able to replace what we lost, they added a few extra!  We love these guys!!

Since little Hamp was sick today, someone was at the house all day to check the new babies.  We checked them pretty often through out the day, praying that last week's disaster would not happen again.

Aren't they just too cute?

We'll keep you posted as they grow!
