Most people in the US don't get mail delivery on Memorial Day, but this was a special package:

Behold the cuteness:

Note the gardening hands. Desperately in need of a manicure!

This one has attitude, doesn't she?

The colorful ones are brown egg laying pullets.

The chunky yellow ones are Cornish hybrids, aka "meat-type" birds.

They figured out the drinking part right away.

And lost no time in catching up on the day's news.

The dog is so happy. She loves babies of all kinds and we haven't had baby chicks in a few years.

That was really a very special delivery. Molly, those chicks are cute!!!! How many have you got? And how sweet that your doggie will look after the babies!

When I was a little girl I had a chick once and I loved the little sounds it would make when it was happy and content. It grew up to be a very big white rooster.

This reminds me of our chick delivery. The driver was concerned about their well-being and had them riding right up front with him by the heater. It was so sweet. I think it is time we think about chicks again also. We stopped when we got two puppies. Now they are bigger and it should work!

O.K. that picture of your dog cracks me up. I think she's cuter than the chicks.
I once raised chicks from eggs for my son's second grade class. Please, please go to my blog and read the post it's called "Gardening with chickens" I think you'll like it.
Do you use the chickens for eggs? I get fresh eggs from my neighbors all the time. They are the best.

Ohhh.... I can see you are all having fun at your house. Except maybe the cat. Doesn't want to share the attention, I'm sure. Have fun with the little critters.

Oh dear! I've been slayed by the cuteness of the baby chicks. Let us know how it goes! I'd love to have a few chickens in the back yard.

Oh, those baby chicks are sooo cute!!!!

Thanks a lot for your nice comments on my pottery balls, sorry I am a bit late for visiting you back.

No, they are not made of solid clay but hollow inside. I use a half-round mold made of gypson and then I put two half together to form the ball.

Happy gardening and have a great week-end!

Best wishes from Germany,

Our neighbor across the street (in Wallingford!) has been husbanding chickens for a couple of years, and just acquired some chicks. No roosters allowed in the city, so it's a hen party.
