Chicks enjoy The New York Times

The chicks on their first full day in their new home. That's Joan, the Silver Laced Wyandotte, just to the left of the feeder, who gets a good closeup, Peggy, the Black Australorp, who's enjoying her chick food, and Betty, the Barred Plymouth Rock, who's over by the water bowl and having a go at the Times. As usual, she can't stand Thomas Friedman.


  1. It is killing me that your videos are blocked from my work. I think I need to work from home for the rest of the afternoon just so I can see them.

  2. That sound makes my heart melt, but I'm used to what they sound like in quantities of 50.

    You might want to fill that water dish with marbles for a few weeks. It's rare that one drowns, but it can happen and that would be terribly sad, especially because you've already named them.

    I'm so excited for you and a tiny bit jealous!

  3. Thanks for the water advice, SP. I put some rocks in the dish (since I've lost my marbles...) and all is well. I, too, was concerned about their falling in and drowning but was too dim to figure out how to do anything about it. When you're free, get in touch and come on over to visit the little darlin's.
