I picked up my baby chicks at the feed store yesterday.
Aren't they the sweetest?
They like to huddle together when it's chilly.
These chicks are in a sunny window for the moment and seem to enjoy the warmth.
This year I bought White Leghorns, Barred Rocks, and Red Star pullets
which should lay eggs by fall.
Eighteen chicks in all.
On the way up to the mailbox, I spied a newborn calf and his mama.
He's still got all that sticky, yellow stuff on him, but mama is busy licking him off.
