It's almost spring and the chicks, ducks and turkeys are in your local farmer supply stores. It's a a fun place to visit even if you don't raise chickens, especially with little children.
We are down to 2 chickens and with Ethan back home I've actually had to buy eggs from Costco! That boy can eat!
So, we went chick shopping.
Came home with 3 leghorns (they are totally white and are awesome layers), another Ameraucana, a sexlink (yup, that is what they are called...it's the tan one) and a black austrolorp (just to keep thing interesting).
We'll be swimming in eggs come summer, as it takes about 5 months before they start.
In the meantime, we get to enjoy this little sweeties. We all have the responsibilty to handle the chicks everyday. This 'tames' them. They are already sprouting feathers on their wings and are just TOO adorable.
