    My New Thanksgiving Tradition seems to be having chicks in the dining room.

    This is the 6th year we will be having bew chicks in the dining room.
    The last 2 years in a row we had hatches on thanksgiving day.
    And last year the PO called and said we had a box of eggs could we come get them now,
    I said yes and ran out the door. :)
    This year we will have chicks that are about a week old peeping while we are eating.



    These birds make us happy.

    I have 7 that are almost 2 weeks and 1 week, and 2 5 week old silkies.
    I moved them to the utility room so we wouldn't have chicken dust flying everywhere at Thanksgiving dinner.
    It doesn't bother me, but I figured mom, grandma, and MIL wouldn't like it.
    I also have 5 silkie eggs due on the 21st.
