Chirp! Chirp!

Filed under: Life in the Sticks — candid reflections @ 10:18 pm

We have chicks – fourteen of them, to be exact!  These little girls arrived yesterday and they’re so darn cute, just like newborn babies.  All they do is eat and sleep, let out a few baby chirps, and then snuggle, sleep, and eat some more.  Well, they do some other business that requires their grass pellets to be changed occasionally, but for the most part, they’re pretty pleasant to have around.  We’ll really be thinking so when we’re cracking open fresh eggs for our omelets one day! 

We took them from their nice warm box out onto the porch for about three minutes today.  They shivered and squawked and begged us to bring them back in and put them under their heat lamp, so we did.  


We’ve been back from our vacation for about three weeks now.  Tomorrow our temperatures are supposed to reach the mid 50’s – we shiver and squawk, where’s our heat lamp?



  1. Cute…. I bet your girls want to hold them. ;o) How long until omlet time?

  2. p.s. you don’t need a rooster…?

  3. You need a rooster if you want to be able to hatch the eggs, but he’s really not necessary if you just want eggs for omelets. 😉

  4. […] you remember back in May when I posted pictures of our adorable baby chicks?  Well, you can’t tell it from the pictures, but two of our baby chicks came to us […]
