    TheChickenCameFirst Chillin' With My Peeps

    As some of you may know, a bit over a week ago we lost our six Pullets (Soon to be laying hens... they didn't even have a chance to live at only 18 weeks old) to a weasel.

    Well, we have officially started over! The coop is in the shop for some much needed renovations to keep every critter out, and we have ordered our new little girls, who should arrive on Friday!

    We are super excited because we have ordered 12 new babies!

    Four Buff Orpington chicks,
    Four Barred Rock chicks,
    Four Rhode Island Red chicks!

    I am so happy to be getting more, but I am also super apprehensive! What if whatever got our last girls gets these? it'll be awhile before they go into the coop full time, but I'm worried still!!

    We haven't caught the offender in our traps! :hmm Hopefully we will soon!!!!

    Thanks to all who urged me to keep goin' and get more chickens! [​IMG]

    Thanks! [​IMG] I was very close to giving up there in the beginning, but when my 21 month old daughter started asking where the "Kickens" were, I knew I had to get more! If it weren't for the love and support I found on this site, there might very well have been a diffferent ending!

    So thanks to all! [​IMG]
