Postcard from Home ~ Easter : Part One

This year at our house, Easter includes the chicks of course!

The image above, and then next four are pictures of the same chick ~ she's very calm and quite willing to pose while I snap her picture.
I'm still deciding upon her name...

She's a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

I love her markings, and her mask.

And the one below is a Light Brahma~

She's a feisty little bird, and full of curiousity.

Next time I'll share two more (Truffle and Sugar) from the second batch:

Here is a peek at Truffle, a very gentle, quiet little chick.

And some flowers from the garden for Easter...

Thank you for stopping by today!

(Truffle again.)

  9. so adorable i don't even have to ask if you had a fun easter! give me a call if you can train them to leave chocolate eggs year round please!

  10. These little creatures are so endearing & you've captured their essence beautifully, Mari! Your photos make me want to reach out to touch their soft downy feathers.

  11. Oh my, those chicks are darlin'..your photos were so fantastic I wanted to pet my computer screen!

  12. I'm so taken with your wee chickens! Where do they live when not posing? What will their eggs be like? We are city dwellers so no chance of having our own brood to raise and tend properly.


  13. Spectacular photos and subject. Wonderful spring color.

  14. Such sweet, cute chicks!!!! I also noticed the wee piece of bleeding heart in your flowers. Ours are just starting to bloom too! Your pictures are always so gorgeous! XO, Pinky

    Belated Easter blessings to you, my friend,

  17. I hope you'll continue to share the pictures of your sweet little chics. They are so adorable!

  18. Great pictures! I would love to have a chicken or two!

  19. Gorgeous pictures, Mari! I'm trying to figure out how to house chickens in my back yard without the HOA finding out! Fresh eggs in my dreams...

  20. It's been awhile since I've been over here. My goodness those chics are soooooo adorable!!! What a fun post.

    From the looks of your most recent posts it sounds like your going into the "chicken" business. I am a bird owner and have a soft place in my heart for our feathered friends.


Thank you for your comments, friends ~ they make my day!
