    We’ll be getting 4 more(we currently have 5, one of them just died yesterday :( )chicks tomorrow from our local feed store but I’m very impatient! I can’t wait! This is just a countdown to when I get them. Everyone who is doing the Easter Hatch-A-Long feel free to join! I just made a new brooder for them. 6B96698E-DFC2-478D-9C6D-34FFDADDBF7D.jpeg 85CE27C5-DEB3-453C-916F-3345B69A830F.jpeg
    Their names are going to be- Cinder, Bloom, Meadow, Sunny. I’ll let you guess the breeds when we get them

    Don’t waste your time making a brooder, just ask some store If you can buy a big cardboard box for couple of dollars, better yet if it’s free. They’ll outgrow it so fast you can always add another room (another box). I used to spend all this money on big containers that were too small after 2-3 wks. They work better, I cut it up after I’m done and dispose it easy peasy.

    We’ve been home for a while now, sorry for the lack of updates. Try to guess the breed! 5227C473-1DF6-4F61-A7BF-BFD433CF585D.jpeg BE00AB29-5E59-4709-BDCF-21C8AF83692B.jpeg DDDFC1E9-32BF-42C0-85F1-9CAE1B243A71.jpeg 9494927A-6007-4641-AD31-4D7C993BF2B2.jpeg
