Chicks at the Dirtbox

May 18, 2009

… the cute, fuzzy, poultry kind, and not the good looking female kind (we already have those here). But, yes, we would like to announce the addition of 4 new baby chicks to the farm! We just can’t get enough of baby animals, apparently. We still have kittens running around the farm house and barn wreaking havoc, and for some reason we decided to add to the circus.

These 4 little angels are Araucanas, and you can read more about the breed here. Mainly it means that they will grow up to look a tad bit funkier than your standard hen, and will lay blueish-green eggs!

Most importantly, they have been affectionately named in honor of the beloved Golden Girls: Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia.

Here are a few pictures of the peeps during their first day on the farm (Pacha is a BIG fan and very much wants to “play” with the chicks):
