Spring Chicks

A loud cheeping and an Aldi’s orange box box have recently taken over my laundry room…this paHome Tweet Homest Saturday, in fact. Twenty of the twenty-five chicks I ordered arrived and boy are they adorable!

See for yourChecking out their new homeself.

Keeping their water clean has been my biggest chore so far. Next time I’ll go with pine chips for bedding over cottonseed hulls…what a mess! Though it is really absorbent stuff. We have three thermometers in the box, one on each end and one under all the bedding…trying to maintain their habitat at 90 degrees Fahrenheit this first week. It’s been fun.

Had a nice surprise today. The girls were all geared up to hit the books hard at the kitchen table when my cousin called wondering if they could come spend the day and have lunch with us. We had a great visit, lots of catching up to do as she just moved back into the area. She brought four of her six children with her, and the weather was GORGEOUS…so we got some sun time in out on the deck while the kiddos played.

Leaving you with a cute bunny pic. Dh found this guy by our barn and brought it to the house to share the joy…never fear…he put it back after we’d loved on it a while!

What spring babies are your favorites? Mine are Holstein calves and wobbly legged colts…
