Yesterday Con and I went
To the DC farmers Co Op
Isn't this water feature cool?
We decided this year was the year to start our Farm family.
So we went to order SIX Chickens to arrive hopefully around the 20th of this month.
YEP I am FINALLY, after all these years of wanting Chickens, going to get my own.
We only wanted four but they said to get more in case. I dont like that IN CASE.
So we ordered;
2 Plymouth Bard Rocks
2 Rhode Island Reds
1 Red Sex link
1 Black Australorp.
I wanted a variety so I can tell them apart.
We were told they were all good egg layers and hardy big chickens
and make good pets as they are not flighty.
So we are expecting Six little fluff balls soon.
I am excited and scared at the same time as they will need some careful care for a while.
I see a new journal coming up on the raising of our own feathered Critters..
Also someone else had been expecting and had her little one a few days ago.
This little tyke was only 2 days old. Unfortunately she had twins and we had to call the Sheep guy to come get it as it came out and broke its leg and mama abandoned it. He said he was going to see if he could save it but we probably wont know. At least this little one made it.
About three days old here.
So little yet she/he was frolicking by her mama
So white too, for now, since there is nothing but mud around there.
As soon as I got these shots Mama took her to the other side of the tall weeds for cover.
Jill's Chickens and Ducks wandered over on our side of the street looking for new bugs so Annie and I shooed them home.
I just love to watch those little butts run, they are sooo cuuute.
How can I not want any?
Annie is getting in practice
OK Mom they are on their way back to where they belong.
Did I do good??
Do I get a Cookie now?
And this is our new motto.
