Easter Chicks

Easter.   Aside from a big holiday, it brings to mind several wonderful memories...   Beautiful church services.   Visiting Nanny & Pa.   Spring flowers.   Newborn lambs playing in the pastures.   Visits from the Easter Bunny.   Tons of chocolate.   And chicks.

Watching healthy happy chicks can only bring a smile to one's face.   They jump, run, "fly", roll, scratch, eat, drink, fluff, and snooze.   All in the same few minutes.   Then repeat it again.

After the local fox (who, by the way, is still at large) got three of our hens, we obtained some new chicks.   Black Australorps and Araucanas which are also known as the "Easter Egg Chicken" as it lays really cool blue-green eggs.

There is something wonderful about new beginnings.
