May 3 - the girls arrive!

Day one - baby chicks.

Adorable. What else is there to say?  The yellow one has been very sleepy. She does perk up, so I'm not worried about her. And one of the brown ones seems to be a little more aggressive than the others. Not bad, just a little bossy. Looks like the pecking order is already being established!  Will have to wait and see how this unfolds. 

Gertie, our Newfie-Goldie mix, has very little interest in the little girls.  I think I could leave them alone together and nothing would happen.  Ellie Mae, on the other hand, is very interested.  As a result, the babies are safely locked in a room so the Goldie does not have unsupervised access.
