New chicks

This weekend I picked up 4 Splash Orpington chicks - they will be white speckled with black.

I had hoped the broody hen's chicks would hatch and I could slip these in with the rest, but the way it worked out I just cleaned out the brooder and set it back up for these little guys. They spent the first couple days in my friends brooder (she got six of them), so now they have to get used to being in a much smaller group. We'll see how they do.
