Our New Babes Have Arrived!

Well, the day has come people for me to be mother again!  Only this time it's to 121,000 baby chicks! 
As you can see they arrived via school bus!

Just don't know how I am possibly going to name ALL those chicks!  Ahhhh....but some do have names already!

This is Walter.  Walter found me right off the bat and followed me the entire time I was in the house!  Isn't he sweet!

Here's my youngest, well, not so young anymore!  And such a sweetie! He's a future chicken farmer!  He's holding Frankie.  Frankie has the loudest "peeping" voice!

This is my youngest daughter, future pharmacist in May and newly married!  She's holding sweet little Dottie.  Can you tell where Dottie got her name????

Here's poor little Marigold, the runt of the entire flock.  She is sooooooo tiny and soooo yellow!  She may not make it through the night.....

Here's my sweetie chicken farmer......and he's not even fond of chicks!

And finally, the mother and keeper of the flocks.  I can tell you now, some of these little critters will have to come home with me!  
More pics as the 50 days continue......................

Now that I've gotten your attention, it's CHICKS we're expecting!  LOL  After nearly a year of construction, the anticipation of newborn chicks is just around the corner!  140,000 of them!  Don't know if I can handle being a mom to all those babes! Here's what it looked like last year before the bulldozers came in.

And there ya have it!  FOUR huge houses all ready for the flock. Each house is 48 feet wide and 500 feet long.  Hmmmm....they would make GREAT storage for the shop!!!  LOL
Here's another view from road going in.

Looking down from the houses.  Will keep you  posted on the developing saga and post more pics after the chicks arrive!
