This is so exciting.... it was around April 8th, 2012 and we went to a hatchery in Norco, CA called Chicken Stars Ranch.... I have been wanting chickens for some time, but did not have the living space available until I moved in my with parents back in January....
After finding this place on Craig's List, I was a bit uneasy about going there, due to previous mishaps with Craig's List in general.... But Ava wanted a pet chicken, so Norco was where we were going to get them.
After we got our City Chicks I found out my local feed barn down the street had chicks for sell too. Oh well lesson learned.
Without further delay.... here is our girls!
Lavender Bantam Silkie
Ava my 4 yr old daughter took the pleasure in naming 3 of our 4 chicks.... My mom picked Henrietta for her chick.
Lavender really was looking like a rainbow of color when we first got her, now she just looks like a grey fluffy.
Blackie is my chick, and I carry her around with me most days... She is really turning into a poof ball with all of her feathers.
I am so glad I took their close ups so many months ago.. because the now pics with just blow your mind on how big they are!
