Finally. I’m so proud to say we got chicks over the weekend!! Four adorable baby chicks. (Soon to get more..I’m sure)
If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you know last Summer we built a chicken coop. (You can read more about that here!) The chicken coop required more time and money than expected. Isn’t that how projects always go though?? By the time we were finished it was nearly Fall and we had several out of town trips planned, so we held off on getting chickens until NOW!
After picking on Saturday, Aaron suggested we go ahead and get a few. The first store we went to was completely out. So we ended up purchasing a few on some farmland near the house.
For now, we decided to get 2 Buff Orpingtons and 2 Rhode Island Reds.
The baby chicks were less than a week old when we brought them home. Itty bitty babes!! After 6 days we can already see how much they’ve grown. I’m sure there will be more to come. Hopefully they will enjoy the coop we labored SO hard for!!
Thanks for reading!!!
