"I Will Hug Him....."

Today new chicks came in!  This is our last batch of our Spring CSA.  Baby chicks are just too cute!!  We all have a hard time not picking up each and every one and hugging them up close.

It reminds me of the Bugs Bunny cartoon with the Abominable Snowman...."I will hug him and squeeze him and call him George."

We have to really watch Hamp.  He turns into Abominable when he picks up a baby chick.  The chicks give me a look like that of Bugs Bunny...."What is happening to me?? ". Hamp so wants to hug them but ends up squeezing them until their eyes bug out!   We have to usually rescue the poor chicks.
With new chicks in, a batch has to move out.   So we got Batch 2 ready to go on the field.  That meant moving pens to the field and getting feeders, waters ready.  Tomorrow is going to be a fun day watching a new batch of  chicks discover grass and dirt.....
