Chick love...

The new girls are here and have settled in.
The sounds of little peeps ring once more at my humble homestead.
It's chick love.......
I'm smitten.....

On an entirely different note, Shane, our 15 year old, became very ill yesterday.  We've been to the vet and are still waiting on some interpretations of the tests they ran today, but, I have a heavy feeling in my heart about this. 

Please keep Shane the Ruler in your thoughts.  He's having a rough spot.

Quite honestly, after I picked the chicks up this afternoon, all I could think about is the circle of life.  Theirs just beginning as another one may end.  I know this song, but, it doesn't make it any easier.


  1. Oh dear I don't like the sound of things for poor old Shane but he is 15 after all. At least with pets you can do the right thing and ease their way.
    Thinking of you.

  2. I'm not liking the sound of it, either. I hope that the vet and Shane will both surprise you.

    Are you keeping the chicks in the house? What is your brooder set up like? Whadja get?

  3. They are truly gorgeous.
    Glad that you have the beautiful peeping and fluff while you are going through the sadder times too. Hoping for good news. Thinking of you and Shane.

  4. Oh, joyful and fearful all at once. I really, really hope you get good news from the vet.

    Circle of life, indeed. I look forward to all the joy those chickies are going to bring you.

  5. Oh, your new chicken are soooo sweet! Love the photos :)

    Hoping for good news from the vet. Thinking of you and Shane!
