It's That Time Of Year Again

We said we were just looking.

But how could we resist?

how could we resist?

Before we knew it, we had a box full of baby chicks and a bag full of starter feed.

five new chicks

Driving home with the chirping box on my lap, I sang, to my family's dismay,

Falling in love again
Never wanted to
What am I to do?
Can't help it.

baby chicks

I hope these girls are up to many more photo sessions (and I hope they're all girls).

By the way, I'm back.

  2. I'm so glad you're back! Your photos inspire me to get down to business and write my landlord and neighbors about getting hens. This has been on my to-do list for a month. I love the big pictures.

  7. Welcome back! Good to see you again.

    Love all the pics but especially the header with all their little feet. Baby chicks...a sure sign of spring!

  11. I stress out about the girl thing, too. 'Cause if I ever end up with a rooster, the neighbors will kill me.
    Seriously, we all know you were there to buy. I fear the same scenario this spring with my girls, who are making their best case for getting more chicks. How did you ever get that photo shoot done without one of them pooping on that clean white background? I must know.
    and that brown one with the black strip is funky. what breed?

  12. You won't regret them...they are really easy to keep. One word of warning though...if you allow them to free-range they can be VERY destructive to planters and gardens and flower pots full of beautiful flowers and herbs. I learned the hard way. Nex time, I will give them a larger run area and give them partial-range!

  15. Hello cuties! And hello friend!

    Our little cuties are almost ready to start laying - that went so fast! Enjoy the fleeting tiny fluffiness.

  16. Molly, did you have to do this to me??? I've been trying so hard to hold out against adding to our flock and now you torture me with these photos ;-).

  17. Welcome back Molly girl! I have been waiting and watching...love Grandma

  18. ah that one looks like HE might have a little comb growing?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh to cute! I miss our hens. We fought our township to keep them, but lost, of course. Luckily some friends have them and we can visit, but I cannot wait until we live somewhere where we can legally have them again.

  20. gotta love those fluffy rumps! (3rd pic.) and i'd keep an eye on the blondie with the spots in the 2nd pic. that much of a comb at such a young age makes me think boy... but i want them to all be girls too! it looks like you got a golden laced wyandotte like our mary lou. they're beautiful birds. have fun watching them grow!

  21. oh look at those little fluffy-puffs!
    I want chickens!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I will not look at chickies, I will NOT look at chickies, I will not look!

    Oh my they are adorable! My gals just started laying again (after taking the last month off). I will have to just revel in their chickenness.

    Good to have you back!

  23. They are so cute! I wish we could have some. I think the neighbors would report us us though...:(

    ReplyDelete
  24. Awwwwwwwwww...the chick with the stripe by her eye is beautiful! Good luck with your newest chickies!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those have got to be the best chick photos I have ever seen! If I weren't working right now and restricted by zoning to my 3 girls, I'd have to head to the feed store right now!

    ReplyDelete
  26. i do NOT blame you. And can you please make prints of that third picture??!!!

    We have plans to "freshen" up the coop this spring, too. This gets me so excited. )

  27. Welcome back! I'm totally making sure my kids don't see your new header or this post, because the oldest is already DYING for new chicks. Have you noticed that as cute as they are, they smell funny? When we got our last batch, we had to keep them in our shower for a day while we built them a little coop. Our bathroom stank for days from their poop!

  28. Welcome back! We're also planning to get chickens, and I'd better get a move on, huh? Looking forward to hearing more about the girls!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey mama! So lovely to see you in this space, you have been missed!
    Your banner is of course so fabulous! I am loving those little feet : ) And now you are making me miss our chickens... xo

    ReplyDelete
  30. welcome back! You've been missed and I feel inspired by those chicks. Hmmm, did I read somewhere that we can have 1 chicken each in the city...Happy Spring!

  31. How gorgeous! We raised two of our girls from eggs - the moment of hatching was amazing but this cute fluffy stage was the most adorable. I am so tempted to try again but we were lucky to get two girls last time (we already have a cockerel) and four totally free range in the garden is sort of managable - I think a couple more might just lead to destruction! Good luck :D

  32. Our meanest rooster was one of those that was supposed to be a girl. His name was Harriet. Someone suggested that like, "A boy named Sue" he was angry over his name. We'll never know.
