New chicks!

A much anticipated (and feared lost or forgotten) box of chicks showed up today.

A quick dip of their beaks to make sure everyone knows how to drink properly and the chickies were all settled in and zooming around in their brooder trough.

These little fuzzballs are layer-type birds that will eventually join our free-range layer flock. For the next few weeks though, their home is in the brooder trough in the sunroom adjacent to my bedroom. Nothing like trying to sleep at night with a background orchestra of little peeps!
