New Girls

New girls are here! 
 
 
I tragically lost the last of my two chickens last October and after mourning them all winter, I took the plunge and got six new chicks last week.
This time I purchased three different hardier breeds and hopefully healthier.  
 
 
They are so sweet and soft, and just what I needed to help me get through these last dreary weeks of winter and endless snow.
 
 
I'm still picking out names for them, but I'm thinking Bitsy for the small brown Speckled Sussex and Betty for her sister.
Then for the Golden Comets, I think I'll go with Marigold and Merry Sunshine, which will probably end up as Goldie and Merry.  And lastly, for the Buff Orphingtons, they will be Sybil (Sibby) and Annie.  Did you notice that two of them are named after the children in Downton Abbey?
 
 
That is Betty standing so watchful and tall.  I think she looks like a meerkat in this picture.
 
 
Here's to hoping they bring a bit of spring to your day!

Your new chicks are so cute Cindy. I love baby chicks, don't you? They just make my day. Sometimes in the spring when I go to the nearby Ranchers store here in our valley, I always have to stop and see the new baby chicks that people have ordered.
I love the names you have chosen for your babies and yes, I did catch that the two are named for the cute little ones on DA :))))
also wanted to tell you that I have been able to do some sewing this winter and got the lovely fabrics ready that you sent and am starting next on them. Thank you again so much for the gift. There is nothing I love better than sewing in the winter. We have had nothing as bad as what you have had there though, and you have certainly been on my mind and in my prayers because of your sever weather there. I hope you have spring very, very soon Cindy.
sending hugs....

Oh what fun! They're so sweet and what cute names. When our dog was hit by a car last year we got Miss Paisley just a few months later. She has turned out to be just the sweetest thing.
