Our Five Feathery Friends

We have a new pet! Actually 5 new pets! My mom and I decided to take on a new adventure together and get some baby chicks! We were at a yard sale Saturday and someone was selling them. So we decided to go ahead a buy them.

We plan on eventually having 25 of them! Wow! I only wanted 3, but my mom thinks we should get around 25. We have a ton of land to put them on so why not? Mom knows a lot about raising baby chicks.

When I first asked Steven if we could get some chickens he said no. But then my mom and I started talking to him about it and so he changed his mind. He is even going to build us a coop! He is such an awesome husband!

Here are some adorable chick pictures!

This is Steven fixing our temporary home for them.
Here we had card board lining their crate but now we have hay.

Trinity actually likes them! I figured she would be scared to death of them but she ain't. Every now and then, she will hold one. But if it starts moving, she drops it!

This is my niece, Hannah, holding her baby chick. (We gave one of them to her)

We are really excited to have these chickens. We don't know if they are roosters or hens so we have to wait until they get bigger to be able to tell. They all look just alike! We can't wait to have fresh eggs everyday!
