We have baby chicks!!!




We had been thinking about getting chickens for a bit. As a family of 7, we go through lots of eggs, on any given day.  Plus the kids wanted the challenge of taking care of the chickens.

An opportunity arose from 4H where we were able to get 10 chickens. So, we choose to get some Buff Orpingtons. While we were awaiting the arrival date of those, my mom decided to also get another 20 chickens. We got a variety of Bared Rocks, and Rhode Island Reds..

Then a bit later this month, we are getting some meat chickens too. This is a new adventure for me and my kids, and we are pretty excited to be along for the ride!

Here are the pic’s of some of our new little Chicks that arrived last week!
