We Got Some Spring Chicks!

Aren't they just loveable!!  We have been talking about getting our own chicks for quite some time, and we finally did it!!  Thanks to Dave for being in the know how for all this kind of fun stuff!  The other day he came home with all the fixings to raise baby chicks and 12 baby chicks to go with it.

The kids are having a hay day holding them.

Lila absolutely LOVES them!  She asks everyday if she can hold them and she kisses and pets them over and over.  It is pretty darn cute.

I am so excited to have our own chicks and to be able to eventually have our own fresh eggs!  The other day Dave and I built a chicken box for them to live in(not pictured) while they grow. I felt so cool with the nail gun and helping him build something.  He showed me exactly what to do and he taught me a few carpentry skills. My husband is seriously the bomb!

That is so fun! Cute, cute pics. So are you planning on keeping a coup or are you just raising them to sell? My mom kept a coop for a few years and my kids LOVED it. The eggs were so good too.

We are planning to keep a coop!! We haven't built it yet, but we've been looking for a good plan and we have about four to six weeks until we need it. We are hoping for our own fresh eggs! If we are lucky all 12 of them will produce. That will mean we will have plenty to share!
