Oh....how I envy you...we used to live in the country..back in the 70's...the kids grew up and married..we moved to the city. Of course we cannot have my beloved chickens. I have to tell you..we had a little chick one time that as soon as we got the chicks home from the post office..we opened the box..and the little thing perched right on my finger. Then as it grew..it would perch on my arm..then full grown..it would fly up to my arm...he was a heavy rooster...we loved that rooster...!!! Thank you for posting about the farm life...Love it! Hugs, Dee

What great pics of adorable chicks! Reading your post reminded me of a visit to a manor house in Devon (here in the UK) last year. They had chickens running about and there was this gorgeously cute little feather trousered hen that was besotted with a large cockerel. Very amusing to watch her follow him around - although he was none too pleased. I loved her feathery legs! Have fun with your new peeps!

WOW, WOW, WOW, they are so ADORABLE!!

I am enjoying the animals SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much, and I appreciate all the information that you share.

I'm praying for Queenie and her calf.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

HUGS.

These babies are soooo cute!! Enjoy!!!

How exciting to have all the new chickies! It brings back memories of when I was a kid and dad would bring home the box of babies from the post office. We had a heat light under our stairs in the basement inside the storage room. That is where they lived until they grew a little larger!

Awwww!! Love all the chickies!

We have an Americana and a Rhode Island Red. I look at their chick pictures and can't believe they grow so big!

Love all the photos! Beautiful job!

Oh how cute. Can I come live with you. Life on the farm and stamping, too! Does it get any better than that?

Anna, I have to say it again and again... thank you for sharing farm life with us city slickers! I swear, I'm about ready to chuck it all in and move to Texas and start raising cows and chickens! LOL Okay, so it's not practical for me, but I can live vicariously through your experiences. Thanks again for sharing. I look forward to your blog every day!

Hello down there! The chickens are cool,the numbers may be a bit off on the Buffs tho,Mom says that we were never so fortunate as to have a 10 pound Orpington. The Hens get to be 3 or 4 pounds and have a very sweet disposition. An Orpington rooster may be a more "stately" statured bird tho. I would name a rooster that big King Kong. Yup it's still snowing! Love, Dad

These chicks are too cute! Thanks for sharing!!

OHMYGOSH, aren't these little guys (and girls) just adorable!! I can't wait to see the photos as they mature from chicks to adults. Thanks for the wonderful pictures!

Oh now that is a great Mail day! How fun...I wanna come play!!! They are adorable!

I am having so much fun reading about your farm. Thanks so much for sharing. The babies are so cute, it gets me excited for spring!

omigosh, that Red Frizzle chick looks like a model! better watch out for her. i think she'll be a diva!

don't apologize for the lighting. the photos are great!

don't you think those Americanas look like pheasant chicks? too cute!!

Hey Anna, the last comment was left by me (Sara sassyat30) NOT otter.

I have no idea how that happened!!!

Anna, those baby chicks are so cute! At the petting farm I work at, we have Frizzles, Silkies, Silver Seabrights and Coachuns.

Last year, we had Aracauna roosters and they were beautiful!

We always tell the kids that the Frizzles look like they stuck their beak in a light socket. *wink*

I love your photos of the babies! One of the nanny goats at the farm just had triplets and they are just adorable!! We're still waiting for some lambs, though. :)

Too cute!! My DH works for the USPS. I totally LOL when he said he was staying late because there was a "box of chickens" coming. I didn't believe him!! Thanks for sharing these great photos!

What a terrific post, and the photos are wonderful. The chicks are so cute--thanks for starting my day off with a smile! :)

OMG!! Those babies are adorable! They are so cute and cuddly looking! Enjoy them while they are tiny and cute! They look like they'll grow into beautiful chickens!!

ooohhh they are just little fluff balls of cuteness! thanks for all the close ups and explaining the markings etc... fascinating. i look forward to this blog so much!
thanks!!

Those baby chicks are all so adorable. I would just want to be out there picking them up and holding them. I love, love, love the farm updates, Anna.

Thank you so much for showing us your babies. All the time I was reading about the new chicks and loving their photos, I kept thinking that I must ask you to show us a photo of the shipping box. Thank you for being way ahead of me and showing it! If you still have it (or some other time), please show us the top of the box (you can blot out the addresses). but I'm just curious about how they mark the box to show it contains live chickens and "this side up" and so forth. I can't imagine shipping day-old chicks! Thanks.

Anna, they are all just darling.

I never knew their were so many different kinds of chickens. I have heard of Bantams.
My mother-in-law used to sex chicks day old. It was a very profitable job until the Japanese came over & started doing it cheaper.
She & her husband used to teach chick sexing in Iowa also...
Thanks for the lesson on chickens.
Love your photos.

Anna- Thanks so much for sharing these precious photos of your new farm members. Can't wait to show my girls tomorrow. We home school and I can almost count a visit to your blog as a biology field trip!!!

Oh, I am SO jealous! :D I love your baby chicks, they are adorable! What fun to have so many different colors...awesome! I can't wait to see them at different stages of their life. You have such a great farm! All the critters are just fabulous fun! :D

They are so cute to bad they can't stay little. We had a pair of bantie hens when we were growing up. We dressed them in doll clothes and gave them rides in our buggies. Their names were Beads and Colleen. Colleen used to sit on the raspberry post and crow like a rooster and then go and lay her egg. We loved them dearly. They stayed in the yard(we lived in the city)but they used to go next door and lay their eggs in the neighbors rock garden when she weeded she was always finding eggs.

They are so PRECIOUS!!! I want one!!! They are just So cute!!!

Oh, aren't they just the cutest little things! I bet they're noisey as all get out too! Good thing you don't keep them in the house. Thank you for sharing so much information about them! It's so interesting to learn all about your farm animals. Just think about all those beautiful, healthy eggs you'll get to eat. Farm fresh are just so much better than stale old store bought. We buy farm fresh brown eggs and there is such a difference. I'm pulling for Queenie that she won't have a prolonged delivery like Dixie did.

Thank you for sharing these beautiful little baby chickens with us. I'm fascinated with all the detail you provide and am amazed that even though I'm not a "farm girl"...I can't wait to learn more about your animals. I check your site daily for my new lesson of the day. LOL. Congrats on the babies !!

oh my gosh, how cute are they?
I had NO idea you could order live animals through the mail- how funny is that?? Thanks so much for sharing all the info and the beautiful pictures!

Thank you to you and Alan for the photos, and for the information. It's been very interesting!!

Thank you so much for sharing and for giving us a lesson in chicks! How cute!!

So cute! I love love love chickens!!!!

These are so darn cute! Thanks for sharing.
