New chicks in the house

We have chicks! Over the weekend we picked up 6 chicks from the feed store. Nicole fell immediately in love with them.

Three of the chicks are Buff Orpingtons like this one.

The other three chicks are Black Australorps

They're all eating an organic chick starter mix. It's already really amazing how much they eat.

This little Buff is named Pyongyang. The kids suggested it and it stuck.

Here's our current setup for the chicks. They'll stay under the heat lamp for at least 4 weeks or so. Now time to sort out our chicken coop needs :)
