Our First Flock

During the wee hours of the morning, Mike made a trip to the post office for our first ever package of peepers.  A flock of Buff Orpingtons, Ameraucanas, Barnevelders, Blue Laced Bantams, Guineas, and Turkeys.  Thirty three birds to be exact.  We had two very weak birds, but with a few hours of extra snuggling and encouragement, they're back on their feet.  

Fuzzy, warm bundles of joy they are, and just exactly what we needed after last week. 


  1. I'm just in love with the picture of the bird on the knee!

  2. I love this time of year! We didn't order any chicks this year for the first time in 6 years and I am a little melancholy about it. I hope all your little fluffs make it! My favorite eggs to cook/bake with are from our Araucanas. Best.eggs.ever.

  3. Love the up close pictures in that beautiful woven linen. We've had some of those exciting middle of the night calls!

    1. Thanks! We made a sling out of the scarf, so I could "wear" the chicks. They really thrived being warm and close to my skin.

  4. Such beautiful little chicks Liz and I'm glad they could offer some comfort after the week you had.
