baby chicks have arrived

Well our chicks have arrived at last!  We ordered them through Murray McMurray Hatchery, which in my humble opinion is one of the best hatcheries in America.  They have very high quality chicks and the good breeding shows.  So far we have only lost one chick which is pretty good because you can usually bet on a loss of 10%. Believe it or not they come in the standard mail and do just fine!

The kids just love them and are so excited to see their own chicks growing.
Mommy is looking forward to a ton of fresh eggs in a few months.


  1. Awwwww, cute little peeps. What breeds did you get? Barred Rocks? Ameraucanas? RIR? And what breed is the yellow peep(looks like it has fluffy feet)? Cochin?

    No peeps for us this year so I'll enjoy your photos :-) Thanks for sharing them.

  2. Awww the little yellow one IS cute!!


I love to hear from my readers!
