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.
