Of what we've been very occupied with over the last several weeks! Chicks, chicks and more chicks! Some I got from TSC and some I had mailed in from a hatchery. So far, my absolute favorite is our lavender orpingtons! My hubby ordered 10 more pullets and a cockerel for me so we can maybe get our own babies next spring. So excited! I picked up a few of the polish chicks at tsc too, they are so stinkin cute and have the most laid back personality of the bunch. I've got several black jersey giants in my brooder in the barn too. We have buff Brahmas and light Brahmas too. Buff orpingtons, a few Plymouth rocks I had to take because they were the last 2 in the tsc bin I felt bad for them lol! I just love all them so much... having so much fun with them I really need to sit down and figure out just how many I have lol! You know, chicken math is a real thing ya'll

Baby chicks are so cute. You need to read the book "The Egg and I."  There's also a movie of it made probably in the 40's. 

Adding:  It's about a city gal who marries a country guy who raises chickens and one chapter is titled "I learn to hate even baby chickens."  We've all seen how baby chicks can bloody each other up and she wasn't ready for that.

I lost 2 chicks and 1 of my older laying hens last week. It just happens unfortunately. Theyve really just been so much fun to take care of. My back living room has become a makeshift nursery lol! I have water troughs back there for my babies ... but they are getting ready to move out to the brooder in the barn with my jerseys ... I hope all my little chickens get along!

I'm terrified of chickens. No bad experiences.

Well... its official, I'm that crazy chicken lady lol! Decided to take on a little side hobby and start a small select breeding business. I love all my chicks! Going to focus on select Brahmas and the lovely lavender orpingtons and now that I've gotten a few cochins I'm leaning towards starting them too. I've got 4 eggs in my incubator right now, due to hatch I. 11 days... it was a practice run to see if my incubator will do its job. Hopefully they will hatch! Super excited. So here are some more pics of my newest babies... I've got 1 lavender rooster chick and 22 lavender pullets... 2 possible hopeful beautiful brahma roosters too... I'm having so much fun caring for all these guys its turned into a nice fun family activity!
