March chicks

Oooh, the dangers of stopping by the feed store on the way home...who can resist the last two lone little chicks?  (An Araucana and a black Cuckoo Maran).

  1. Impulse buying! Normally I associate that with shoes, or handbags. I think you will get more out of your impulse buys than you would a pair of fancy shoes or handbag, though.

    1. Oh, I hope you get some!! If the begging doesn't work out for you, try buying them yourself and apologizing afterwards ;)

  3. How could you NOT pick up the last two chickies? It wasn't like you had any choice in the matter, it was essential to your well being and theirs!

  4. Little peeper people are almost impossible to resist! Looks like your little one approves of them! :)

    1. She is smitten with them! When I passed by them at the store (in an attempt to focus on getting what I actually came for), she threw her arms out toward them and pleaded, "chickies!!" as if to say, "Save them! The poor chickies!" Defenseless, I tell you. I was utterly defenseless.

  5. I had a close call with 9 bantam chickies - good golly, they were cute! I doubt very much if I could have left those cuties behind - and they are lovely breeds, to boot!

  7. We got a turkey one year because of that very same reason! We named him Rusty!

  9. I am right there with you - I was at the feed store and the chirpping drew me in and before I knew it I was slapping my hands and running toward the check out counter to pay for my hay before I did something silly. I would rather purchase chicks then a handbag any day. I know I am not normal.

  10. I was kind of eyeing the Cuckoo Maran in the hatchery catalog. Can't wait to see what yours looks like as it gets older.
