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......................

Rhetta, you do KNOW how badly I want chicks don't you??? and then you go and get THOUSANDS of them!
I swear Marigold would be in my shirt pocket until she was able to be on her own... oh, I want a chicken so bad! But the coyotes and fox range here and my little chicks would be a tasty morsel, I am sure. You take GOOD care of Marigold! Tilda
