New Farm Babies

Despite our many heartbreaks and losses with our chickens and ducks, my courageous farmgirls were ready to give it another go. So last week, we welcomed 16 chicks and 13 ducklings to the farm!

4 different breeds this time:
Buff Orpingtons, Ameraucanas, Silver Laced Wyandottes & Barred Rocks

Baby Mallards


This guy loves his Mallards...and they love him.
{On top of his many other talents, I think he may be a duck whisperer!}

She's my instant favorite...
because she reminds me of Aunt Annie Lee.
{May even call her by the same name since we lost the original so early.}

A fluffy little chick makes anyone smile...even first thing in the morning!
{I'm so not a morning person, but a farmgirl has to learn!}

Their current home: a trough in the garage.
{Smells like a barnyard in there. Ducks are a MESS!}

A little outdoor playtime.

Isn't she beautiful?!?!
{Aunt Annie Lee 2}

These will be black and white speckled.

We're all crazy about our babies,
but Laura Finley can't get enough of their cuteness!





I'm sure you'll see plenty of these feathered friends as they grow.
I could watch them for hours each day. {And sometimes I do!}

xo,
P.S. In other farm news...
it turns out "Mister" is a Mrs. So we've renamed her Sassy.

Hope and Sassy...

...each laying their own beautiful egg each day!

  10. I love our green eggs. They are such a soft beautiful green.

    All of your farm babies are just precious. So glad you started over with a new brood. We are getting enough eggs now that we are selling almost ten dozen a week. It's nice getting a little money to put towards their feed.

    I can't wait until October. Think about it often...

  12. Oh goodness, your new farm babies are darling and oh so very fuzzy!

    But, sweetest is your baby girl sporting her chippy pink nails. My baby girl is 17 now and that just flooded back memories for me.
