CHICKENS!

So, last week we bought 6 chicks! Joshua found a gal on Craigslist that had chicks for sale, on Orchard Mesa. So we went out there and bought them and a small bag of feed from her. The kids have really been enjoying them, trying to name them. Bethany has been loving watching them when they were in a cardboard box in the garage. (She calls them "doggies" and asks about them A LOT now!) Joshua finished (mostly) the chicken coop this past weekend and we moved them in on Saturday night. We let them out for about 1/2 hour before we put them into the new coop. Well, one little sneaky one went under the deck! We may never get him out... so now we have 5!

Joshua still wants to finish the chicken chalet, as he calls it, by adding a door and ramp, chicken wire and a little pen so they can go outside. We are looking forward to having our own fresh eggs!
