Finally took the plunge and got my first flock of four day old EE chicks. They are so stinking cute I can hardly stand it. My husband and I are moving more and more in the direction of self-sustainment and we already grow several of our own vegetables (and fish) through hydroponics and aquaponics systems. Chickens were the next logical step in our little homestead and like I said...I fell in love with them the moment I heard their little "peep, peep, peep" lol. At only a few days old I am already seeing some quirky personality traits and am looking forward to watching them grow!
