Nothing to Do With Quilting...Chick time!

 Hi, Little Girl!!
We received our chick order today...they are a nice, lively feisty bunch...yay!
We have mostly Buff Orpingtons with a few Isa Browns this go.  I have missed the Buff Orpingtons, they are my favorites.  We started getting Isa Browns because that's what the local feed store provided in the Fall.  We switched to Fall from Spring several years ago after experiencing some nasty Springs with power outages.  This year, Buff Orpingtons were on the list for Fall...so we made sure to order some!

In case you wonder, the Isa Browns are actually the better layers, I just really like the looks (fluffy big bottoms :)  ) and personality of the B.O.'s better...

They are very cute. Are the Isa Browns cold hearty too? We got another chicken house a couple of weeks ago Someone brought into DH work a "playhouse" which he had made for his grandchildren. It is nice looking 8X8 needs to get a "foundation", I think the linoleum should be removed, and a new front door and it will be ready for another set of chicks.

Very cute. Post us a picture of the grown up kind so we can see what an adult Isa Brown looks like vs a Buff Orpington. (please!)

They're adorable Kris! Chicken personalities are so funny, I can see why you would like them better! I've always been so tempted to get into chicken ranching.
