Posh's New Baby Sisters

Well, on Thursday we got a phone call from our Postmaster that a "peeping" box was ready for us to pick up.

So, Posh is a big sister to twelve baby chicks!

What beautiful, unusual chicks! Will they be egg layers? Is that what you have them for, or are they simply for your enjoyment because of their appearance?

I love chickens!

Violet is a little beauty, too!

Sheri they are all egg layers. Right now we have two "mixed breed" hens that we got from a local farmer friend as poullet (adolescent hens). This year we wanted to add to our flock with more calm, winter hardy, brown egg layers. So we did some research and ended up with some fun breeds: Australorps, Cuckoo Marans(They lay really dark "chocolate" eggs), Laced Gold Wyandottes, Plymouth Rocks (the big white typically American looking hen), and Silver Laced Wyandottes.

Here are some pics of what they should like as adults-in above listed order.

oh my gosh, they're beautiful. I would love to have fresh eggs... I always buy the organic, cage-free/free range, hormone and antibiotic free for both health reasons and because I HOPE the chickens are kept humanely in natural conditions, but I don't really know for sure. This summer I'm going to see if there's someone at the local farmers market that keeps their chickens in happy conditions and sells truly fresh eggs.

Amy, I just realized your daughter's name is Violet - which has been at the top of my list of puppy names for a couple months, and I may end up using it. Hope that is only the highest complement! It's such a sweet name!
