Saturday was a fun day of talking with other chicken owners and picking out our own first set of chicks. We got 6 - 1 Ameraucana, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes, 1 Gold Laced Wyandotte and 2 Rhode Island Reds. I outfitted one of our big storage tubs with their brooding necessities and it's setting in my ebay room for now. This week I'll build something bigger that can sit on the front porch, as they'll start making quite a bit of dust and want more space pretty soon.

These little ladies are 4 days old, and quickly found their food, water and a little roost:

And with only minor squawking and pitching a fit, they let the boys hold them. Here's Clay with his little Rhode Island Red he named Hot Sauce:
