Today our baby chicks came in the mail. We went in with two other couples to purchase them, as you HAVE to buy 25 chicks in a batch. So the cute little white ones are ours, ten of them, for future egg laying. My friend offered to raise them for the first 4 weeks at her house, which helps us tremendously with the fair preparations in full swing. We only have 2 weeks till fair time, which will give us 2 weeks to get our chicken coop built and ready for our babies. They all look good, so far, and are keeping each other company and warm.
This is what we're shooting for...eggs from the yard instead of from the store.
