    My DW called me about 5 minutes before she came home to tell me to get the brooder ready. The one I was going to put together for the chicks I was going to order. She decided to go into the local feed store and just look [​IMG]
    Well they told her they were about 2 weeks old and the last 95% female Buff Orpington left, and she was only going to take 3 since this was are first time with chickens, but she felt the last two would be lonely so she took them too. The addiction has started.....
    well here are a few pics with my daughters holding our new additions.

    The First one I thought it would be cute for them to be in the basket, but they
    didn't want to stay in it but were very content to sit on the side.





    If they were actually 2 weeks old when she got them, then they are 3 weeks
    old here. There is one here that the wings are about half the lenght as the others. But they all seem to be eating drinking and pooping just fine.
    I guess the high light so far was seeing my 16 year old daughter get pooped
    on. [​IMG]
