Our First Chickens!!

Well I finally decided to go ahead with it and get some chicks today. I wasn’t sure I was going to get them this year with going to LA twice and being gone a long time for my wedding. So I researched and talked to a lot of people that have chickens and I was assured they were very low maintenance so whoever house-sits for me wont have a hard time taking care of them.

I decided to get 5 as sometimes they don’t all lay at once and I use about 2 eggs minimum a day so I figured if I get extras I will give them to mom. I went with a variety of colors but made sure they were all good layers and friendly. We decided to give them fun farm names too…. so far the black is Buttercup (named by a friend), I named the yellow one Daisy, and still not sure on the golden ones. Ashton’s favorite is the muti-colored brown one, I said she looks like a hawk so that name seems to be sticking. So if anyone has any fun names please throw them my way.

Right now they are in a big box which will hold them for a few months while we build a coop. One of our many summer projects!!

Enjoy!!

Ashton's favorite, Hawk
