Lovisa and Ellen count the new baby chicks.

Lovisa and Ellen count the new baby chicks.

We just brought in our new batch of layer chicks!  This is a variety of different breeds that were available from Murray McMurray Hatchery.  These varieties include: New Hampshire Reds, Silver Spangled Hamburgs, Light Brahmas, Pearl White Leghorns, Blue Andalusians, and Black Minorcas.

We also got the random chick that Murray McMurray includes with every order, but that very night one of our barn cats, Spot slipped in and caught that random chick.  The only consolation is that the random chick is usually a male and they don’t lay eggs.  Spot, we hope, is very sorry for what he has done.
