The Girls Are Here to Stay!

Guess who came to dinner and stayed? The Girls, yes, I got 8 little fluffs of downy feathery baby chicks. I actually went to the feed store to buy corn seeds and asked if they had any baby chicks and they said Yes. Well, I brought them all home with me. Now I need to name them. So far I have named three of them. Buttercup, Freckles and Red. I still haven't thought of the other five names yet. I need to take a closer look at the others tomorrow to see what makes them each stand out. But, right now, I am so happy they are here. Now I need to start planning on building their home. We got Americanas, they are the ones who lay the blue and green eggs or as Martha Stewart would say " The Easter colored eggs"

I think I will take them for an outing tomorrow to see their surroundings, of course this outing will be supervised.
Until tomorrow.
Hugs :)
