    Well, had to run to Wilco Farm store today, and they had baby chicks. By the end of the day (went back to get 3 more later in the day) we have 9 chicks!
    3 Barred Rock
    3 Speckled Sussex
    3 Rhode Island Red.

    They are very cute!!

    I know people like pics, so here they are:

    I also have an order of 12 more laying hens from Lazy54 Hatcher (BO's, GLW, SLW, Wellsummer) and we have 16 eggs in our incubator so, I guess you can say that I've been infected with the Chicken Fever, & I LIKE IT!!! [​IMG]

    RIR chicks are super cute for a week and then they get the worst dinasaur look for the next 2 weeks until their feathers come in.
    Congrats!

    What is it about this chick craze with which we're all afflicted? I finally have peeps in my brooder that I can sit and look at all day, but I still can't get enough photos of everyone else's peeps - OVERDOSE OF CUTENESS!! Thanks for sharing! (I want some speckled sussex!)
