One of our favorite spring rituals is picking out a couple more baby chicks to add to Chez Poulet. This morning one of our local feed stores had two chicks that I had been looking to get - a Blue Cochin and a Rhode Island Red. We already have one Red and I really like her. She is smaller and a great layer. We have two cochins - a buff and a black. As I am partial to blue birds (our rooster is a blue splash bantam cochin and my sweet frizzle is a blue splash as well) I was quite excited to see that they had blue chicks in!
Aren't they darling?
