Look Who's Here!

 Look who has arrived here finally!  Five little chickies!  All of whom are surprisingly good models.  They are Buff Orphington chicks.  I chose this breed partially because they are mild tempered and good mother's, but mainly because they have super fluffy butts!  Call me weird, but I love fluffy chicken rears!  They look like they're wearing old timey pantaloons.  These girls will be reddish colored when they're all grown up.  And in a few more weeks, the Araucana's will arrive....those are the ones that lay colored eggs (pink, blue, green, etc.)

For now the chickie's are living in my studio, which means the kitties are not allowed in...which Sophie is quite disgruntled by.  Oh well...safety first!  Part of me never wants these girls to grow up, while another part of me can't wait to start collecting eggs!  :) 







Peep Peep!!

What fun to see those live chicks guarding your vintage treasures. I hit the local feed store the other day just to see the big bins of chicks waiting to be purchased. The whole aisle was just one big PEEP, PEEP, PEEP!
p.s. bathroom is close to being finished!

OMG! Too cute. Makes this city girl miss the country life. Nothing is as much fun as living and communicating with other members of the animal kingdom!
