these little chicks are the latest additions to our family! i’d planned on getting some more hens to add to our brood in the summer, then we got the offer of these chicks, and well, they’re so cute who could say no? they are three weeks old, so are currently inside under the heat lamp still. i don’t think we’re going to get much else done for a while – they’re pretty entertaining!

the little black one {a speckledy} is Lola’s and she named her liquorice. The other two are gingernut rangers, kiki’s is called gingie and baya’s is called silkie.

chickens make such great pets. the kiddos love them, kiki especially spends hours down the woods with our hens. today though we have to build a fence around the veggie patch so that the hens don’t eat all our crops!

what do you have planned for today loves?

    Such cute little fluffballs! We have been wanting to add to our flock, and now I feel even more inspired to do so.

    Aw, cuties! I used to have baby chickens when I was a kid. They’re adorable, but they need so much attention! I especially loved how my baby chick liked climbing up my shirt and nuzzling (and sleeping) behind my neck because it was warm. If I set him down and walked away, he’d run after me. Then, when I sat down next to him, he’d climb back up behind my neck. Cutest thing ever, haha.

    Distilled beverages bottled with added sugar and added flavorings, such as Grand Marnier, Frangelico, and American schnapps, are liqueurs. In common usage, the distinction between spirits and liqueurs is widely unknown or ignored; consequently, all alcoholic beverages other than beer and wine are generally referred to as spirits.:,::
