Welcome our new little ones!
These 12 chicks are settling in nicely, making a mess, and growing already!
This time we got 5 different breeds: 2 Black Sexlink, 2 White Leghorn (prolific egg layers), 2 Columbian Rock Cross, 2 Rhode Island White, and 4 Araucana (we’re still hoping for those blue or green eggs!). I was surprised to find that 7 of these chicks are yellow, so we’re not sure who everyone is yet!
The three brown and one yellow one are Aracauna (they always come in different colors), the two black are of course the Sexlink, and the rest are all yellow. At just a few days old, they are already starting to show their feathers in their wings, and they were hopping or flying up onto their heater on the very first day!
The hope is to only have them in the house for 3-4 weeks, as long as they feather out well and the nights are a little warmer, they can hopefully go to the coop by early June. I got the best photos I could, even with my good camera.
The light is not great in their room, plus they don’t stand still enough! They’re also still shy so they try to hide when we visit them, though a couple of them definitely seem braver and friendlier.
I’ll try to get some better photos when I have more time, or when we get a brighter day out so more natural light comes in. They’re going to grow fast, that’s for sure!

There are few things cuter than baby chicks! You should have some “eggs-cellent” returns on this addition.

Congratulations on your new chicks! I hope you get the green eggs, they are so pretty.
With four of them, at least one better come through! LOL

They are so cute when they are chicks. Of course you also get those that develop a real character as they grow.
They are already showing their personalities….one of the bigger ones clearly is the leader of the pack. 🙂

They are noisy little buggers, but they are ever so cute.
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
They get louder all the time too. I can now hear them upstairs in the morning, when I’m lying in bed. 🙂
So cute and fluffy. OH can’t wait to see more adorable pictures.
We’ll keep ’em coming! 🙂
Cuteness overload! It will be fascinating to watch them grow and change.
It is just so cool when their feathers start to show the different colors!
they are so super cute… I always wanted leghorns as a child , but I looked puzzled as we got them… I thought they look like the one in the cartoon LOL
Foghorn Leghorn! He was a big boy! 🙂
My mom always wanted some chicks, but they don’t stay chicks forever, so we don’t have any. They are so cute!
They are much less work when they are little chicks (and far cuter)!
