one good thing...or five

Who knew that five fluffy little bodies could bring such joy and giggles back into this house? If it only lasts an hour (which it won't - it will last much longer), it will be worth it. The kids are overjoyed to have our little buff orpington chicks home. We have sat gazing at them for hours today. I wish that Jeff could see how the chicks light up Liv's little face. She is like a little mother hen....extremely protective. She has become the 'ruler of the chickens'. She wants to sleep next to the chicken box. They are extremely cute.

That is great. They are so cute. It was such a wonderful idea for you to go ahead and do that. Olivia is smiling so great.
What a wonderful mom you are.
I think you should all sleep by the cage, so that you can all hear them get up in the morning - sweet little voices that they have,
You have made the kids day!

They are so sweet Jackie! It's a dream come true for you, now you can put all that chicken knowledge you've been acquiring to good use! And a wonderful little distraction they are for you all, huh? They must sound so cute. Can't wait to see them.

ooooh, I love the little peeping sound chicks make! And how they sleep in a heap of fuzzy cuteness. So good to know that you are all smiling.
