I'm a proud chick momma!!!

WARNING!
***
This post is full of proud mommie pictures.

***

Is this not the cutest face you have ever seen?



Did you guys see the darling pictures that Heather Bullard took of her sweet baby chicks?
If not, you just have to. They are so darn cute.

It inspired me to take a few of my own so I could always remember the joys of their babyhood.
I can't believe how attached I am to these little cuties.








I haven't named any of them yet, but I'm thinking.

It's hard when you don't know whether they are roosters or hens.
I would hate to give a rooster a comlex by naming him Harriette, after my great aunt.






This little guy wanted his picture taken too!


How could I say no?





This little one wasn't to sure about it though.







But this sweetie was a little more willing to share the limelight.





I think the Easter chick just made a friend!






Wait a minute...is this a chicken hug?




This was a lot of work for these little babies.
(and for me)




So after the photo shoot...we were all ready for a nap!!!



I have to take a blog break for awhile. I am so busy doing garden bed clean up,
and we have started the construction on the backyard studio. The crew has been
here working nonstop for the last three days. I am the lucky one that gets to go up
and down the road to the lumber store whenever the guys need something.
I'm feeling spread little thin right now.
I won't be doing a White Wednesday post this week and maybe next,
but after that I hope to be back on task. I hope to be able to do a little blog hopping
though, but if you don't hear from me, I will be catching up with you all soon.

I want to thank all of you who stop by and read my ramblings, it means so much.
 And whether you leave me a message or not, just know how much
 I appreciate each and everyone of you!


And if for some reason I haven't come around to thank you for your
dear words, I apologize. I really do try to thank everyone who takes the time to 
make me part of their weekly reads. 

***

I want to wish each of you a blessed Easter tomorrow.
I am so grateful to my Lord and Savior for what He did for me...for us.

Oh my ~ those are indeed the most adorable little chicks! And how cute is the last photo of them all being cozy and sleeping. Very cute.

Have a most wonderful Easter!

Diane said...

Your little chick pictures are precious, June. I don't know which one I like best.

I'm going to miss you. Don't work too hard and come back as soon as you can. You're such a welcome friend. Diane

Happy Easter to you and your family.

I've always wanted chicks since I had them as a little girl. I always thought if I had the chance again I would name one Nettie Rennie after my Grandma. don't you think that would have been a good name? Makes me chuckle just thinking about it.

"Here Nettie Rennie Here Nettie Rennie" hehe

Can't wait to see studio pics. if you take progress pics you would have enough for about 20 posts (hint hint)

A Fanciful Life said...

Oh, June.... these chicks are sooooo cute! I saw the ones on Heather's blog earlier today too. Total cuteness. There is nothing like baby animals (sigh...). Wish they could always stay that way!
Have a wonderful Easter and good luck on the project.

Oh June, Those little chicks are so cute and your pictures are gorgeous! I just love how the chicks look at the yellow one. I think they like him/her. How sweet they all look in your bowl. But wait a minute! What's with that pink Easter bunny in the background? Someone must have given him the wrong address! He was supposed to come over to me ;-)!
Have a wonderful Easter, dear June and good luck for the construction!

LiLi M. said...

You're right to be a proud chicken momma! They are so darn cute! I think I will never get tired looking at photos of young animals, especially not when it are your photos June, as they are stunning, as ever! Too bad that you'll leave us for a while, though I can perfecty understand of course, but I will miss you. My consolation is of course that if I want to see those beautiful photos of your perfect garden I will have to let you go now. Well, have fun! I told you already, but I don't mind doing it again: happy Easter to you and your family!

TAPESTRIESOFNATURE said...

HI JUNE, THOSE LITTLE CHICKIES ARE JUST ADORABLE! I THINK ONE OF THEM FELL IN LOVE AND WANTED TO GIVE THE EASTER CHICK A LITTLE PECK! LOL

AND HOW MANY CHICKS GET TO STRUT AROUND ON SOME ONE'S COFFEE TABLE AND NAP IN PINK GRASS! IF THEY'RE LUCKY, AT SWEET JUNE'S HOUSE!

IT SORT OF REMINDS ME OF WHEN I WAS A LITLE GIRL. OUR NEIGHBORS HAD A CHICKEN COOP. USUALLY I THOUGHT IT REALLY FUN TO SCARE THE FEATHERS OFF OF THE CHICKENS BY STEALING THERE GLASS EGGS! ( I WAS SUCH A SWEETIE!) BUT ON EASTER SUNDAY, AFTER CHURCH AND STILL IN MY EASTER DRESS AND BONNET, I ENTERTAINED THE FLOCK BY SINGING SEVERAL RENDITIONS OF "IN MY EASTER BONNET" ACCOMPANIED WITH A LITTLE TAP DANCE! I CAN STILL HEAR ALL THE CLUCKING THAT WENT ON TO SHOW HOW MUCH THEY LOVED MY ROUTINE! (NOW THAT I LOOK BACK THOUGH, THEY WERE PROBABLY REMINDING EACH OTHER NOT TO TRUST THE BRAT IN THE DRESS!)

THANKS FOR THE ADORABLE POST AND KNOW THAT I WILL MISS YOU.

A BLEESED EASTER TO YOU AND YOURS, JUDY

Zuzu said...

Sweet babies!!! I did see Heather's photos - I think you two have the rest of us thinking about raising chics! :)
Have fun w/ your projects. I was just thinking the other day about the many (MANY!) trips down to the city to buy every nail, board, and wire that we built into our tiny house. But soon you will have your studio - I can't wait to see it and hear about all your lovely plans!
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Easter, June.

Julie Pishny said...

June, We will miss you! I know how it is and you must take care of your tasks around the house so we can see pictures of your wonderful garden and Fleurs!

Well have a great Easter Day with your family, I can not wait for the music at church this morning!

Dear June,
Your chicks are adorable. Why is it that anything that's a baby is soooo cute ?
I'm sure that you are pleased that you got them as chicks and not as grown hens, aren't you June ?

Hi June,
Alright that's it! I am now jonsing for some chicky love. Between your post and Heathers I can barely stand it. George has been wanting to get chickens for years and now that I've seen Heathers chicken coop I now want one exactly like it.
LOve your new babies. They're so lucky to have you as their mama!
Don't feel pressure to get back ...I've been a bad blogger too lately!

Happy gardening and hope you had a great Easter!

Sweet friend, you will be missed.

Your little chicks are cute as can be ... but they grow up & PECK people!

Hariette could easily become Hari & Henriette could be Henri ... you are safe to have a wee bit of fun.

Anxious to see the studio when you are done.

I hope that your Easter was beautiful & blessed, June. He lived, gave & died for our sins & souls. How blessed we are for Him.

Have a beautiful week.

Heather soooo inspired me that my husband is working on plans for our own chicken coop! This is even sillier because we live in the middle of the big fat city. I can only have a few...but I don't care...I WANT THEM! I will post pics if we ever get it finished!

I hope you and yours had a wonderful Easter!

Enjoy!

Cindy Geilmann said...

I absolutely love this blog. They are the cutest little animals I've ever seen. And that little toy one, what a cute thing - and the real one became his friend and gave him a hug. Tears ran down my face. That's called unconditional love!

Made my night, it's 2:30 am.

I'm so happy for you to be back in the dirt and i can't wait to see what your building.

wendy said...

Cutes pictures ev-ah.
Brought back a wonderful memory for me. My grandpa used to have chickens, and each spring he'd buy like ---a hundred or more little chicks. He'd put them in the chicken coop under a BIG light which was to help keep them warm.
when we'd go into that chicken coop, we had to be careful to not step on them. I loved picking them up and holding them

I can't believe they were so co-operative for you photos. They must be Diva chicks.
And a rooster named Henrietta would be GREAT.

sounds like you have your hands full. I too find it hard to keep up with blogging lately and visiting everyone as now that the weather is warm... I NEED TO BE OUTSIDE DOING COUNTRY FARM GIRL STUFF.
so...stop by when you get some time.

Love the little chicken ..or should I say peeps. Reminds me of being on the farm and Dad bring s in little peeps that just hatched... Love the pictures Elaine

Oh June, they are darling!!! I love these pics! I bought 7 babies two months ago... only to lose 5 of them to the neighbor's dog. I was heartbroken (to say the least)... but 6 more come in this week! I totally understand what you're saying about being spread thin! Ditto ditto that!
