Zebra & Lacey.

Today, after a little discussion, a little pleading, and a little internet research, we made the decision to purchase a replacement chick for Grady. The big chicks will be moving to the coup soon, and we didn't want the new baby to be all alone... so we bought two. (Sigh.) But for the first time ever, I was able to pick out my own baby chick. Grady and I looked online at a bunch of different breeds, and finally decided on our choices. The funny thing is, they look very similar, which I think is cute.

Grady chose a Plymouth Barred Rock, and named her Zebra, for obvious reasons.

I chose a Silver Laced Wyandotte, and named her Lacey. Also, not a very original name.

And now, with no further ado, I introduce to you our new chicks, Lacey and Zebra.

Lacey is 2 weeks old, and Zebra is 3 days old.
I was a little worried that Lacey would pick on Zebra because she is smaller, but that Zebra is a sassy little thing. She was jumping straight out of the box on the way home, and when we introduced them, she pecked at Lacey. Tonight we went out to say "goodnight" to them, and Zebra jumped on top of Lacey to see us better. I think that means that they get along swimmingly, and are already best sister friends.

Happy weekend to ya!
Have a great one!
