cHiCkEn FaRmErS, yes we are...

So back in April, Leah and I thought it would be fun to be chicken owners and of course our children would be our fine partners.

We remembered having chickens as tweens and just knew our kids would love it as much as we did.
The day arrived, we hauled two toddlers and a baby to the first feedstore, no luck all out of chickens, dang! So to the second store we headed, SCORE...we left with six brown hens, six black speckled hens and two unknowns that were yellow.

They were so cute!

This little chicken farmer named his black speckled hen, Chloe.

Yes, Chloe survived.

This little chicken farmer named her yellow "unknown" Chick, Chick.

We nurtured and cared for our little chicks and also prepared the chicken coop, located in our parents barn. We think it is a five star coop :). Needless to say, the chickens grew rapidly and eventually made their way into the new coop.

We were so eager to receive our first egg from our once finally arrived small and cute like they were when they were babies.

{The big eggs are from some hens we adopted from friends and the little eggs are from our baby chicks...not so baby anymore}


SO CAN YOU GUESS IF CHICK, CHICK (the yellow unknown) IS A

take a guess, maybe it will qualify you for a little sumpin', sumpin'
