Well, we finally have our first, real farm animal additions. I feel like a real farmgirl… almost.

I didn’t think to close the door that would keep the cats out while I was getting the bedding and feed out of my car. Luckily the cat who noticed has absolutely no hunting instinct and only stared at the chicks with a “what the heck did she bring home now” look on his face. So, lucky for me and the chicks, all are safe and sound.

The four yellow chicks are ISA [edit] Browns, which I understand are excellent layers and the two that have dark markings are Araucanas which will lay the fun blue and green eggs (I believe Martha Stewart has an unattainable paint line based on the eggs of her Aracauna chickens).
