Special Delivery...

Guess what we got in the mail yesterday?



I'll give you a hint. They make LOTS of noise. And they are SUPER CUTE...


Any guesses yet?

OK.... Here they are:

30 super soft, super noisy little broiler chicks... So far all is looking good, but we aren't in the clear for a few days, I don't think. So I will keep you updates on how they are doing!!!

hi sarah -- question - what breed are the 30 chicks you just received? what are the features of this breed, why did you pick this breed. i wish you well in raising them. some years ago my wife and six children, and me, tried raising 12 white ducklings, we raised 10.

Anonymous- These are called Black Broilers, we got them from IDEAL poultry. We chose them, to be honest, because they were on sale! We have been waiting for broiler or Cornish to go on sale, and these did! So, that is why we chose them! I hope they are a good chicken, I guess we will see.

We also have ducks! We have 4 Mallards and 5 Peking. They are so much fun to watch. Right now, they have a small spot in our pond open, but the food is scarce. So, we feed them whole corn. They come up and nibble on our boots waiting for food. I love having them around!

Ahhh... they are so cute! But, they will grow very fast, won't they? Chickens seem to grow in the blink of an eye, literally! Good luck~ I hope all 30 of them grow up to be big chickens!
