Guess what's in the box.
Go on, guess.
(Hint: it rhymes with where I live - in the "sticks!")
Did you guess six blurry chicks?
You were right!!
You knew I'd do it.
We HAD to run into town anyway; well, sort-of. But while we were there getting chicks, we did pick up some garden supplies and feed - so it wasn't a trip JUST for more chickens.
(It makes me feel better to say that!)
We added 6 red pullets to our brood. They are guaranteed to be 2 things: girls and good layers. That's just what we needed! They're living in the pigeon cage while the bigger chicks are down in the brood pen. I hope I can juggle the transfers ok - these chicks are probably 2 or 3 weeks younger than our first batch, so they'll need to stay warmer and separate for a while.
They're cute as buttons! And I think we're full up on chickens.
NO MORE CHICKS. NO MORE CHICKS. NO MORE...
