Well it is not the frizzle chicks I was wanting (maybe I will get those next year). I ran over to Merchant Square and picked up a few things and heard an ad on the radio it was chick day at Shoppers Supply and I knew there was one in AJ cause Emily told me about it, but they also had one in Chandler and that is where I was…so it was kinda fate right?
So I punched in the address in my map dealie and off I went. Well look who came home with me.
3 little ducks…
…and 2 chicks…this picture is not that good.
Let me introduce you…you'll see where I am going with the names…ha!
I am Mary – I am a Barred Rock and I will be like Aunt Bea
I am Rhoda – I am a Rhode Island Red and I will be like Stella (RIP) and Polly
I am Georgette and I will be a white duck and I am not sure the breed yet…anyone know on the ducks please let me know. The store showed me on the computer and like a dork I didn't write them down.
I am Edith, let me tell you the ducks were harder to take pics of than the chicks.
Here is Edith being camera shy.
I am Phyllis…she (please God let them all be girls, the store said 99% sure) has a little tuft of hair on the top of her head and she is so soft.
They are all set up in the brooder with the heat lamp on them.
We can watch them from the window by the kitchen table.
Am hoping they all get along. The ducks will grow way faster than the chicks. I can't wait till they are a bit bigger to let them swim a bit. I will definitely get a picture. I want to do it in the tub, but Jeff is not going for it…might have to bribe him.
Well this old gal is gonna check the heat lamp and make sure it is set right, the sun is down and night is here.
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.
