Dreaming of chicks

Today we had to run to the feed store to pick up some feed for the chickens and quail and they had some brooders filled with chicks.  I took one look at them and completely fell in love.  I already have 8 girls of my own, plus all of our quail, but I can never get over how cute chickens are when they are babies!

I woulld love to bring some of these darlings home but they aren't exactly what I am looking for so I chose to wait.  I mean after all, how many chickens do I really need, right?  Then again, can a girl ever have too many chickens!  :o)

I have my heart set on some Copper Marans...and have for over a year now...so I should probably hold off.  I did get a bit of good news today though, I might have 6 baby Marans in about 2 weeks!  If that happens I will be getting rid of some of my current girls next fall and will have my Marans that lay deep, dark chocolate eggs.....yiiipppeee for me!  Wish me luck!
