So all summer long, I've known when I go back to college I'd have to leave my chickens behind. I just didn't know it'd be this hard Since I go to school about 3 hours away, I don't really come home on weekends, and I go on tour with Symphonic Band during Fall break. So I won't be home to see my chickies until december My darling little Ella is only a month old, she'll be almost laying age by the time I see her again! Ugh. I'm simply heartbroken. Who knew those silly little beaked faces could sneak into my heart so fast.
