    Hello everyone! My husband and I will be getting our first little family of ten day old chicks from a local breeder on Saturday. We are going to be surprising our 9 and 10 year old boys for Easter. Our coop and run are a quarter finished but since that we decided to get our babes so young we have another month or so before they will need an outdoor home. We are so excited to meet our little chicks!!!
