    And I went shooting on Saturday for the first time. I shot a 22, a 9, and a 40cal. I did pretty good on my first try... This was the 40cal:

    That is a very tight grouping at center-mass. Well done!

    Wow, Congrats on the chicks. That is so exciting to watch them hatch and nerve recking too.

    Great job on your first time shooting. It's really fun isn't it? Not to mention the fact that women tend to shoot better than men, that makes it even better! I see what calibers you shot but what type of guns were they? I love the M&Ps. I carry one in a 9mm but am looking for a 40. The blow back is hardly any different from the 9 to the 40 with the M&Ps and makes it a lot easier on my when my wrists are in pain.

    Aw, I went to check on the chickens because its SO windy and I had removed the chicken wire from around Lucy and the babies, and all was well. The chicks were chilly but Lucy didn't keep them out for too long. Now I'm getting kinda sad about letting some of the babies go this afternoon but its for the best. I really don't want them too crowded. I've determined that 16-18 is a good number for us. And we should get enough eggs to sell this summer to start saving for my small growout coop.

    FM- I love my little gun; it's a S&W .22 long rifle handgun. Tiny and cute and perfect for my purse ;)

    I didn't catch a picture if it, but, one of the half day old chicks has already used the nipple waterer in the brooder (the hanging medicine bottle). They also have a water dish. But, it is nice to know they can learn to use one right away.

    such cute chicks. What breeds or are they just mixed/mutts? Mine are due in a week. i'm getting excited and trying to keep myself from candling them. I want to wait til day of lockdown to candle them.
