Flock of chickens

Life is full...sometimes it's full of chicken poop, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

We got our batch of heavy-breed roosters from Murray McMurray Hatchery last Friday. They came in a box the size of a standard box that clementines come in (hard to believe 27 chicks fit in there). They are, as chicks tend to be, so adorable! The one I'd love to keep is the "chipmunk chick" - middle left in the photo above, and here:
He still has his egg tooth on his beak. Cuuute!
