I didn't think I was going to have or do chicks this year. But on the way to work a couple weeks ago T. said he thought I mite need more chickens and that I should get 6 to 8 chicks so I would have eggs this winter.  So I am hand raising 8 chicks for the first time, now that I have no broody hen to do it. The hens I had as broodies last year went back to their mom a few months ago because she was going to get new chicks and need the girls to raise them.  We both got fooled no broody hen for ether 1 of us. So we both will be hand raising our chicks.  Old saying "Don't count your chickens before they hatch" comes to mind for us both this time because we need a broody hen. :-)   So there are 8 baby chicks in my dining room and I am loving it so far.
The day I got them March 30th

3th day I had them

Made them a perch

April 4th
 I will update photos of the girls as they get older. I am thinking they were a few days old when I got them.  They are Red Sex Links and I got them from our local Tractor Supply Company.                                               


  1. Hahaha! This post made me laugh. And those are the cutest pictures. I love all of them, but the one with the girl stretching out her wing is awesome. I still think the angel wings picture may be my favorite though. I just love that picture. I know you are enjoying raising these peeps! XXXOOO

  2. Penny, I love hearing them start peeping as soon as they hear my voice :-) Last night they were very quite when we had supper, T. thought they mite have known we was having roasted chicken, hahaha. I told them they had nothing to worry about for a long while, you girls are hens for laying eggs :) So then they peeped up and started specking their mind on that.... lol I can hardly wait to see your new chicks, I bet they are going to be so cute too. Love ya XXXOOO
