They have arrived! We recieved the call from our post office early this morning and our chickie dreams rolled into a reality - they are actually here! We're doing just what we set out to do! After all, this whole chicken thing is the reason we started looking for more room in the first place. You could say they are a big catalyst for our new life changes.
Monday morning, William and I set out to the barn and in just a few hours knocked out a simple chicken brooder. By the way, when there's THIS much to accomplish, we find ourselves chanting silly phrases like "knock it out", "get r done" and "bust it out". We used a quick sketch for reference and only eliminated one part of the design, which was the legs - we needed it to be the perfect peeking height for Dane and curious pups.
All 25 Araucauna chicks (green/blue egg layers) and one mystery free chick are healthy and happy in their brooder that is sitting poolside (what a life!). We are all finding excuses to go outside and hold them despite the deleriously warm weather. Just one question...is it wierd bring baby chicks into your bed?
