Cute Chicks

Well, the one guy I initially emailed never emailed back again, which is fine because he made it seem impossible to raise chicks and there is more to it than 'raising' them. Well, I figure I've kept Tiki (our bird) happy and healthy for 5 years now. I can handle chickens. Today was Matthews Easter party at school and Abbie was in no mood for it so Ab and I went to Tractor supply and what did we hear???? little bitty chicks chirping away. So i got 11 chicks. 6 of them are Rhode Island Reds and 5 are Bantams.
This was right when we got home and i realized i forgot bedding for them, lol.

Not the Abinator!! noooo, we've heard of the Abinator!!!

Don't you love little chubby hands. (Thats oatmeal on her face)

I got their heat lamp on them.

Eating and drinking happily.

That ones my favorite.


This is what a Rhode Island red looks like all grown.

These are some Bantams. I guess they can have a variety of looks and they are naturally small birds and lay really small eggs. hmmmm, should have read up on them before getting them. I figured they cost .50¢ more than the others, that there was something special with them.

There is one very tiny one in there and it barely moves around. I don't think it's going to make it and it was one of the 2$ ones. If it wasn't so late I'd take it back. I hope it makes it though.

Oh they are so cute! What do you do with them when they are all grown up? Please tell me they live happily ever after and don't end up extra crispy or original?
