So I broke down....

and bought some baby chicks.  My first try at incubating was a huge flop.  I think I am going to blame it on temperature.  It is the cheap thermometers fault.  Next time I will have several good ones just to be sure.  I am not a failure.  I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me...Oh wait that is a whole other post.  

Anyway, enjoy these baby chic pictures.  We are really having a blast with them.  They let you cuddle them!  They are curious and sweet.  I am very surprised at their different personalities.  Chickens have personality..  Who knew?  

These are Long Island Red chicks.  Hopefully we will start getting fresh eggs by fall.
