It is rainy, but warm for this time of year in SE Illinois, but it couldn't be a happier day....at least not until my grandkids get home from school and all the excitement begins because I made a trip to the farm supply store and came home with chicks!!! 2 Barred Rocks, 2 NH Reds, and 2 Ameraucanas!! These are all new breeds for us and I'm excited to watch them grow. We've had chickens now since 2009, with Buff Orpingtons, RI Reds, Black Australorps, one silver laced Wyandotte and white plymouth rocks.....I'll post pics later. I know you all like to see photos!
