The husband and I have been talking for over year about getting some chickens for eggs. Slowly we have been acquiring material for a coop like none other. But have been taking our time since we have a 5 month old. Well yesterday a hen at the facilities I volunteer at had a random little clutch of 9 little ones. Unfortunately they were not doing well. Peacocks picking them off, drowning in a community water bowl...you get the idea. So rounded up what I could I brought them home to be safe! They are set up in a nice warm little brooding type box, safe waterer, and some started scratch they dove right into. I'm anxious to see who makes it, my little mutt chicks.
