Ta-Daaa!! After many technical difficulties, and several lost drafts, here is the extremely condensed, picture heavy version:
We have chickens!
|The all yellow one was a day old when we got her, the others were closer to four or five days.|
This may seem like a sudden development.
It isn't really. I've wanted chickens for years actually, but for several years our living situation wasn't compatible. But now that we are planted in one place again, the desire has been stirring strongly.
So back in May, we went to the feed store and picked out six adorable and supper fluffy chicks.
|1 1/2 weeks old|
Our baby fluff balls are growing into our own little flock of happy, healthy, natural, soon-to-be-egg-laying hens.
In the meantime, they are super cute. Fun to play with and watch. And what an amazing opportunity to get first-hand experience of seeing nature at work and being a part of it.
