(Some) of our new baby chicks

9 baby chicks were welcomed home 10 days ago.  On the left, two bantam araucanas.  One of our Silkie chicks stands in the center.  A barred rock chick is perched on their feeder.  We found these chicks locally; most mail order sources require a minimum order of 25 chicks.  Soon to join them will be 2 Brahma chicks and I hope that they are hens--one of their attributes include winter laying of eggs.
