New Laying Hen Chicks

New baby chicks is always an exciting time on the farm.  Today we were blessed with 20 new baby Orpington chicks, a beautiful color of gold and yellow.  This breed is a very sweet, docile bird that loves attention and people.  They will come right up to you asking for attention and wanting a hand out of yummy chick treats.   Time is spent checking everyone out for any problems and making sure everyone is drinking water and eating well.  Then its onto a long awaited nap.  Just happens our daughter from New Hampshire was visiting with us and got to enjoy this special time.
