Welcome Spring...cold outside but hot in here!
We have wanted a back yard flock for years(Ruben & I have). When I found a farmer near us that raises chickens and had chicks for sale we went for it. It felt good to know where theses chicks came from. We got them one day after they hatched and tomorrow they will be two weeks old. They sure get a lot of attention around here. Yet there is enough attention to go around for all of the animals we have in this family...dog, rabbit, hamster, 2 tanks of fish, and now 5 golden sex links hens. The boys have gladly given their permission to turn the playhouse into a hen house. We have another month to get it very secure for our little ladies. This is how I will welcome spring...with chicks under the light. Since the outdoors has not yet invited me to put my gloves, pull out the garden tools and start digging.
