The chickens are here

A couple weeks ago, I ordered some chickens. This weekend, we set up the chick area.

This morning, the post office called at 6AM to say that the chickens were there. I went and got them, and they’re running around their little pen.

We’ve got 5 araucanas, 10 silver-laced wyandottes, and 10 barred plymouth rocks. We’re hoping to get about 10-15 layers, and the rest will be for meat.

    They’re so cute!

    Your outlook is more grown-up than mine in this respect, but I don’t think I could eat anything that I’d raised from a baby.
