New Peeps!

It seems like Buddha Hen has been brooding forever, but in reality it has only been 3 weeks.  And we have some new chicks as a result!

This one came from one of the small, white eggs, so it's either a mini Priscilla, Elvis, or Little J.P. 

This will probably be a leghorn: 

And I'm hoping this one will be an Americauna - but it's so hard to tell when they're this small: 
Still some eggs that haven't hatched, but we're hoping for a some more chicks before the end of the day!
We have a friend that wants as many as we will pass along, and we want to keep a few for ourselves too.

Edited to Add - We have 3 more chicks this morning, so a current total of 6!  Plus 4 more eggs that could potentially hatch today.

I bet the boys love watching the chicks. This is so exciting. I will have to stop back and see if more chicks are arrived.

I'd love to have some chickens some day-we are allowed to have up to three within the city limits now. I just have to talk my husband into it. Your chicks are so cute! Our yard is full of baby robins and sparrows now-it's fun to watch them learn to fly:)

Angela said...

They're too cute Lisa! I hope they all hatch! I'm with JP on the naming of Little JP! How in the world did you get those babies away from their momma? There is a man down the road that has a lot of chickens. Several have little ones following around after them. That's a cute sight to see!

Congratulations on the babies! They are so adorable. I have a goose (or two or so) that have been on their nest for about seven weeks with a total of one gosling. Sometimes too many moms isn't a good thing!
