Wordless Wednesday: New chicks!

Last Monday, my hubby had an extra day off for President's Day. We took advantage of his extra day off to drive south to get some new chicks! We had recently had an incident with a big black dog getting into our chicken pen and coop and killing two of our chickens. (One died that day and one a few days later. :-(   Poor things!) So we were down to four chickens. We really wanted to have more, so we went to the same place that we went to two years ago, a guy we found on Craigslist.

We ended up with eight new chicks, and they are all so cute! The kids had quite a discussion on the way there and back in naming them. Bethany wanted all Avengers names, since that is her current phase! But Mallory wouldn't have it, since they are all girls. We conceded and let her have one, so we do have a "Captain America." :-D

 At the chicken house, the man had over 1500 chicks! This one was sleeping so sweetly...
 This tiny guy was the owner's granddaughter's chick, it is a bantam, won't get real big. So cute! We did choose one of them!
 Pretty feathers shining in the light...
 Black girls!
At home, in our box here is our bantam, named Lizzie (I think after the character in Cars.)

Other names we ended up with are: Cocoa (for one that will lay a brown egg), Providence (she is a Rhode Island Red), Penny (or Pennsylvania, since it was President's Day!, Remington, Splash (she will lay blue/ green eggs) and Clarice. We had a Clarice before, but Mallory really liked that name. We have one that will be black with silver wings, one that will have a brown stripe, and a few breeds we've had before. They are eating, sleeping and cheeping a lot! It will fun to watch them grow!

Genesis 1:26
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

Luke 13:34
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!

James 3:6-8

The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person,sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
