So, we went to TSC today to pick supplies as are bringing our first goats home tomorrow… and all the baby chicks were out!  So many varieties, so much chirping, too much to resist!  And since the 1 month olds were on sale(!) we got 2 chicks of 3 varieties known to be cold weather hearty… docile… and big layers.  Australorps; Rhode Island Reds, and Barred Rocks.

We already had a hen and a Rooster on the property that were Australorps.  Harold and Maude.  Big, calm, beautiful birds.  Harold is the rooster you see on the main page of the website.  the Green iridescence of the feathers in the sunlight is breathtaking live.
