Yesterday I stopped by The Garden Sphere in Tacoma to pick up 3 new baby blue cochin chicks. I special ordered these a few months ago and I think they are going to make a neat addition to our feathered flock. Do you see the feathers on those tiny chicken legs?
Once I got the chicks settled, Lucy and I sat on a crate in the garage peering into their make shift coop. She is in love, and thinks the chicks are hers. Each time we have gone out to the garage since bringing the chicks home Lucy dashes over and sits next to their bin, waiting to say hello. Ahhhh it’s so cute I can hardly stand it.
This is what the hens are suppose to look like once they are fully grown. Aren’t they gorgeous? Talk about a show bird. I bet I could win some blue ribbons with these babies. The Girl hasn’t named the chicks yet but I’ll let you know as soon as she does.
I would have take a few more pictures to show you but the lighting is bad in the garage,and the chicks seemed pretty tired from their journey. I didn’t want to stress them by handling them to much.
But I promise more pictures in a few days.
Will YOU be bringing home new chicks this spring? If so, what breed are you thinking about?
