Chick Days

They're here!  Baby chicks have got to be one of the cutest things on the planet!  We've 15 Ameraucana chicks and more Rhode Island Red Chicks on the way.  The Ducklings are also beginning to hatch, with one joining us this morning.  

In honor of Chick Days, here are some photos from last year:

These were all Ameraucana's also, being raised by our resident Mother Hen of Hope Farms:  TopHat.  We love her mothering skills - she's a fierce protector and reliable teacher.

And just for fun, here are some photographs of Henrietta and her brood on a warm summer afternoon:

She is also a great runner-up Mother Hen, our Henrietta, and had taught her little ones at an early age to fly up to roost at night.  Even though it was close to 100* degrees, they insisted on setting up underneath her.

We love baby chicks!  If you are interested in purchasing any baby chicks from one day old to 2 weeks of age +, please let us know.  We welcome your inquiries!
