We have had several family members start raising chickens over the last few years and we decided it was our turn. We live "on a farm" to a degree and we have plenty of room. I also like the idea of fresh. Bailee thinks we need a cow, but I am not there yet. Sam and Makayla think we need a horse. I would love a horse, but sadly, no. Jeremy thinks we need a goat and all I can think about is the demon nanny goat we had when we were growing up. Scary! So no. Chickens it is. Here they are when they were little. They are not so little anymore. In fact, they are just a few short weeks away from being kicked out of their nice inside home to the own house.
|This is Drumstick and probably the last time Luken held one of the chicks. When he saw them poop on his sisters a few times, he was done.|
|Bailee named this one Pablo.|
|Pablo, Drumstick, and poop.|
|This is Makayla's and her name is either Flower, Rose, or Daisy. Actually, I think she finally settled on Daisy.|
|Sammy with Betty|
|And this is Emma Rae on the left and Omelet on the right.|
We ended up buying a couple more to add to our flock. We now have eight total. I am excited. They have been very fun to have. The girls are helping with the responsibility of them which is a definite bonus.
