We have 75 chickens at our house right now! Or at least we did until a few minutes ago, when one Mrs. Cindy Johnson came to collect her 10 egg laying chicks.

Yes, my mother is a chicken wrangler thanks to moi. She plucked 10 of these little guys, who arrived Monday. Here are the goods:

The egg layers arrive! These gals will live with us a bit longer than 10 weeks, God-willing

This is a Turken. Which is a real thing. And also an unfortunate-loking creature. She holds her own when the other chicks mock.

The turken will look like this when she grows up, God Bless er.

This chick is my favorite. Her fluff is out of control.

We got a lot of these chicks in our variety pack, but were not sure what breed they are. Heres hoping we got the Easter egg chickens, who lay pastel-colored eggs.

    Wow, that turken is something. Like all the bad genes from both turkey and chicken.

    I thought turken were a myth, like the chupacabra and the brontosaurus.
