    I love getting new chicks and the excitement of how they change. I just wish they didn't look at me like my name is Elmyra!


    They are happily munching on starter and drinking their sweet water in their water trough in the garage. The weather is sooo warm I don't even need a heat lamp but I will put a cover on them at night.

    McMurray sent me 16 very healthy chicks. Nine EE'rs, 2 Black Star, 2 Red Star, 2 Brown Leghorns and a mystery chick that is probably an extra EE'r is what I'm guessing. I'm so glad they lowered the minimum for summer months.

    The little brown one in the top photo LOVES water and must be part duck! ...or she's a bully and wants to control the water....!

    This beautiful little girl is a Black Star. The dark black is so pretty!
