Hey Chick! Want to Foul around?

The chicks are here!!!

I got a phone message in the morning with little peeps on it for about 30 seconds. Then my friend's little girl called to tell me that I had to come see the chickens, and who had what color beak and feathers, how old they were, etc. etc. etc...
Their oldest met us at the end of the driveway with a HUGE grin on his face hopping up and down saying that we have to come see the chickens, then he tore off through the woods to the coop while we parked. No sooner did I get out of the house than their other two kids came running screaming from the house "YOU HAVE TO SEE THE CHICKENS!! YOU HAVE TO SEE THE CHICKENS" and an adorable "Them's so cute!" from their little girl.
Eight of these little fluffballs are ours. Our much more experienced friends got 17 to join 8 older girls that they adopted earlier this spring. We can tell a few apart already, but in a week we should be able to tell all of them. They will come home a week from today!! One that they can tell is an Auracana (probably Americauna) is a real sweetie.
Art says I am not supposed to name them, but the kids and I were starting to formulate a list of who is who ;)
