Well, okay, it's not that obvious, but yes, they are pretty anxious for you to get right down there, and they rarely fail to tell me the chicks are making them crazy with their peeping.
I bring the chicks home, and the box is attacked by eager little hands. Did I say yesterday that chickens are not as cuddly as baby puppies? Well, I take that back...
Their faces say it all, don't they? Although big sister didn't think they were quite so cute, I made her take a picture anyway, so she can't say I don't put her in my blogs. Anyway, she's so pretty I like to take her picture!
I ordered the Idea Poultry Special this time. For $66, I got 10 assorted pullets (hens), 3 ducks, 2 geese, and 4 turkeys. I also ordered 30 Buff Orpington pullets. It was fun to open the box:
I love my chicken farm. I love my big family. Someday I hope I'll love those goats that I can't keep in a fence, and that break the Dollar Store chains I put on them. Life is pretty good!!
