Good morning everyone! Hope the dads out there enjoyed a very happy & relaxing Fathers Day. Been wanting to announce this for some time, but it was a (shhhh…) SURPRISE! For my daughter’s graduation, my husband and I bought a special gift of.. 6 CHICKENS! We’d decided to make the purchase part of the Mom Central grant, but had to keep it hush-hush for the sake of fun. The chicks arrived just as we were leaving the graduation ceremony last week. As soon as the girls got home we rushed to pick them up and the girls (of course) couldn’t wait to hold them. We are now the proud owners of 4 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Australorps.
Some girls get jewelry or flowers, ours get hens! I’m looking forward to many eggs (and many egg-inspired recipes) in ~18-22 weeks. I’ll be blogging all about the chicks in the interim.
