My husband wanted to surprise with something big for Mother's Day. We have always talked about things we would 'someday' want. His wishlist includes a trip to Australia and a boat to go lake fishing. Mine includes traveling cross country in and RV and raising chickens.
Well.... we got some chicks!
This post will be picture heavy because they are so adorable!!
They are super cute and they make this little peeping sound constantly. They were a bit skittish at first but we handle them every day to help with that. They will be in the house for a few months!! (MONTHS!!!) So that will get interesting as they get bigger!
Our 2nd Week:
Four are supposed to be Rhode Island Reds, the other two we are not sure about (the ones in the last picture).
I'll keep you posted on how this all goes over the weeks. They are growing fast! We will have to build a coop outside soon. I don't believe we will get eggs until the fall but it is a fun family project. The kids all seem to enjoy having a pet ... or six.
