New Chicks

        There is a horse ranch across the street and down some from our house, with some chickens as well. Our neighbor, who happens to board a horse there, brought home a few chicks that had hatched and had no food or water. It has been far too cold for chicks to be outside right now, as it has been getting below freezing every night, and chicks are supposed to be at 100 degrees for the first two weeks. Anyway, she brought them to us, and they are in our chick brooder in the laundry room.

        We are not going to name them because we will be eating the roosters and don't know which ones those are yet, but they are still fun to have for a while. Cute, aren't they?
