Meet the new chicks, same as the old chicks

I picked up the as yet un-named chicks yesterday at about 5 pm. We toyed with the idea of getting different chickens, but we like ours so much we got 6 more Golden Comets. We hope to find homes for two of them, unfortunately the woman who said she would take them has backed out. Say hello!

Ohh, corn meal, my favorite!

Feeling snoozy
Time for a nip-nap. The chick in the middle fell over the second after I clicked the shutter.

Hi chicks - you've certainly found a good home there! Hope they grow up to have a happy life! By the way, there is something very satisfying about keeping the lawn edges neat - I always feel as if I've done a good job after I've clipped my way right round the garden with my long handled edging shears, even if my back does feel as if it's going to go into a spasm! I either need longer handles or longer arms, or should that be shorter legs?

I love how they fall asleep onto each other. The ducks do the same thing. It's hysterical! The most recent duck photos I have are on the family blog from June 8th. I think it's a good idea to keep with a breed you like. What about candy names? Snickers, Toffee, Kisses, No huh? I'll keep thinking. What about spices? Rosemary, Savory, Sage, Salt and Pepper??? OK, I'll stop now. Happy chick raising.
