The Chicks Arrive
Last Fall I got 4 chickens as an experiment to see if I would like having them enough to invest in a full scale operation. Two of the four turned out to be roosters, so they got returned. I then traded the remaining two, who were not yet laying for two that were and......I fell in love. Some women need to feed their nurturing side by carrying around a tiny dog in their purse...I got 12 baby chicks. I have ordered a coop which should be coming in the next few weeks that will hold up to 15 chickens. Oh the joy! I know, I am weird, but happy. I have 4 different breeds and will get blue, green, brown and white eggs. They won't be laying until late Summer or Fall, I will let you know when the first eggs arrive.
