We Have Five New Babies

We are the proud owners of 5 little chicks.  The cats were very curious but sweet with the babies.  They are all different breeds.  We have a Welsummer, a Golden Laced Wyandotte and Silver Laced Wyandotte, a Salmon Favorelle, and a Silver Gray Dorking.  The chicken coop arrived Fri and Todd put it together in just a couple of hours.  The chicks won't get to live in it for a few weeks because they need to grow up a little first.  But they are soooo cute.  We've enjoyed watching them today and the "pecking order" is already going on.

Little Stinkers

Todd was out taking care of our chickens when along came a momma skunk and her 6 babies!  Notice the tails sticking up in the top photo.
