    Hey - Since Ida had to be put to sleep a couple of weeks ago we've become moms to six new barred rock chicks. They are adorable and are settling in nicely. Our dogs are very curious about them and the cats are too. Here are a few pics from their first day home:

    I have been handling them - letting the dogs sniff them and putting my hands down in the bin where they are. They come right up to my hand each time.

    My other barred rocks that I've had since they were pullets aren't mean...they follow me around the yard and eat out of my hand.

    I hope that these chicks will be tamer and will let me handle them when they get older.

    I LOVE these chicks! Sooooo cute.

    The chicks are in a tub in the sunroom this weekend but will move to a brooder in the shed this week once we know they are settling in ok.

    More pics to follow.
