Here, Chicky Chicky....

Some new arrivals to our little flock! 23 chickens of various breeds, and 2 Guinea keets! Aren't they just the cutest things?

"Mmmm...a nugget!"
Don't worry, Nola won't hurt them. She's completely under my control here with her "leave it".

This one and the one below are gunieas. 

Here's two of the silkies. So cute, and they have feathery feet!


  1. YUM...Did some buddy say CHICKEN DINNER! {Just kidding...they're adorable}

  2. Sweet! Nola moms going to make you some chicken soup

  3. Very cute little babies! My guys have a very good "leave it!" as well but I don't think I'd turn my back ;-)

  4. They're so cute when they're little. And can be so mean as adults. :)

    But actually, I hear that some chickens are very sweet. If I ever decided to keep them, I'd definitely pick breeds well known for being easy going. Perhaps there's a golden retriever style of chicken?

    And I have to congratulate Nola on her "leave it." That is absolutely wonderful. Good girl.

  5. Awwww, how PAWfectly adorable those chicks are!

  6. They are so cute! The dogs got to meet some of those at the feed store and I think Zoe finally learned where chicken nuggets come from! LOL

  7. Awwwww!!! I am glad Nola is so well-trained. Blueberry was super interested in going after the hamsters when I first brought them home, but she eventually learned they were friends and not food. Although, she has tried to go into the baby chick pen at the feed store a couple of times.

  8. They are so cute! I've never seen a chick with feathery feet!

  9. You're making me want some new babies!!

  10. Awwwwww wow!!!!! They are SO cute!!

  11. The last time I brought baby chicks home my miniature dachshund thought that I'd brought them home for her to eat. She was very disappointed when I told her NO but she obeyed.

    The funny thing was that they were in a box that looked like a McDonald's Happy Meal. Dolly was so focused on that box that she completely missed the fact that I'd also brought home some baby rabbits too.

    She soon learned to leave both rabbits and chicks alone. Later when the bunnies got big and turned in to escape artists Dolly would help us round them up without biting them.
