The Chicks Have Hatched!

New babies have arrived – chicks from the Blue Laced Gold Wyandotte pen and some of my daughter’s Buff Columbian Wyandotte bantams.

Here are Bob & Bron our blue laced golds:

At the moment the chicks are in a brooder box next to the wood heater as the nights have been down to -5, cold enough to freeze the water troughs outside.  The chicks are funny to watch; they all bunker down for a power nap, then all jump up again and rush around fussing at this and that. They keep themselves very busy achieving not very much.
