baby chicks and a harness

Today was a big shopping day : ) I bought 25 baby chicks they will be comming to a post office near me the first week in Feb!! yippie : ) I had fun doing some pretty crazy mix and match of rare breeds and show breeds and some good old fashon breeds... here's the line up!! should be quite a flock ... of course there will be many photos ... first the new coops and then the babys : )

ARAUCANAS
SILVER SPANGLED HAMBURGS
SILVER LACED WYANDOTTES
WHITE FACED BLACK SPANISH
GOLDEN CAMPINES
LAKENVELDERS
PARTRIDGE ROCKS
SILVER GRAY DORKINGS
RHODE ISLAND REDS
GOLDEN POLISH
CREVECOEURS
DELAWARE
BLACK AUSTRALORPS
EGYPTIAN FAYOUMIS
BARRED ROCKS

in addition to this purchase I bought Chief his first harness!!! very exciting as well .. I've been ground driving him a bit but there is only so much I can do with out the actual harness... so I got a work harness for pulling logs and a skid sled along with a single tree atachment : ) more on that soon, the harness comes in about a week!!! in the mean time I have a lot of reading to catch up on ...

this gorgouse photo of chief was taken by my horse mentor Midori Morgan who gave me back my horse and confidence after my accident! I'm forever in her debt!! http://northbaynaturalhorsemanship.com/

This is so great! I cannot wait to see all those crazy chickens. Very exciting.

And I'm so, so sad to be too far from the farm be able to have some of your fresh eggs -- I will miss that very much, and you have spoiled me for the store-bought kind. too bad you can't send 'em in the mail. :-)

that photo of Chief and Lemon-Lime is so great - man, they look like they are related!!
