And so begins our poultry adventure. We picked up our chicks today from Miller’s Feed in Albuquerque. They are just two days old and happily peeping away under their heat lamp.
We have four breeds of chicks (hopefully all hens, but we won’t know for a while yet if we’ve got any roosters).
The breeds are:
Rhode Island Red
Araucana (also know as an easter egger or a south american rumpless) (rumpless, hah!)
Excuse me while I go look in on the chicks again, they keep falling asleep spontaneously and just kind of falling over into a fluffy little heap. The cuteness is maintaining at pretty much ridiculous levels.
