My New Babies ~

Daisy, Pearl & Abigail (Esperanza) ~ it's a long story...

They arrived by mail tuesday, and sadly only 3 (of 5) survived the overnight trip ~ poor babies, and one looked a bit shaky, but she had water, food & nice warm heat and she came right around ~ thank goodness!

Everyone has stopped by to meet them, and the kids and their friends are giving them lots of love

The end of April I'll add to the flock from my local Agway

...just so cute!

...and so funny, already doing their chickeny things, like the backward shuffle ~ so cute I tell ya!

They weren't so interested in co-operating for the photo shoot, but they loved the moss and the decorations. They will be the hit of our Easter gathering today!

Speaking of photo shoots ~ I'll leave you with one of my favorite photos from the wee years ~

Hope your day is filled with joy ~

Daisy, Pearl, and Abigail are SO sweet... that's sad about the others :( I was at the post office one day when they had a box of little chicks and I wondered how well they fared.

Hope you have a Happy Easter!

Love the fuzzy babies. Hubby and I used to raise chickens every year, and they were so messy-cute! Adore the way you staged them in the flower basket... just perfect!
