So, as you are well aware from the pictures I have posted over the last week, our chickens have arrived on our little homestead and we couldn’t be happier.
It took awhile for these lovely little chicks to find our home. We should have had them about a month ago. They were being hatched in a kindergarten class, were suppose to stay for a week and them come on home to us. Unfortunately there was a little misunderstanding and the chicks were sent home with someone else. To say we were a little heartbroken would be an understatement.
Lucky for us the farmer was handing off another set of eggs to another kindergarten class to be hatched and she informed us that without a doubt these ones would be ours. So, we sat back and waited. It was hard, especially for Reece.
I am happy to say the lovely little chicks have been with us for ten days now and it is totally amazing!
Each one has its own little personality. Both Justin and Reece have picked their favourites and I just love them all. We are still working on their coop, which should be ready by the weekend. For now they are living in a Rubbermaid container, inside a dog crate in our little cottage in the backyard. It is the perfect place for them for now.
You can bet there will be a few more chicken posts over the summer as we settle into this new adventure.
