Time for new chicks!

Guess what my mother informed me she found while perusing my favorite ag store today? BABY CHICKENS! in the fall no less… I was really torn. Starting baby chicks in the fall… getting them grown up enough to face a cold surly winter. Should I? Mr. Red is so lonely… he needs some more of his own kind. What is a rooster, without hens?

So, I go home, I research the city statutes that I had left the girls to do last time we bought chicks in the spring. Sure enough, they were right. We are allowed twelve birds. Only one can be a rooster… well, that is accomplished well enough, so I bought eleven chicks. Once again, hoping for the best. If you’ll recall, that’s what we thought we bought last time.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed. The just cheep and talk. They are really adorable. Last time, in the spring, I didn’t have to worry about temps, it was just so warm and a plain old light bulb was perfectly adequate, but with winter coming on, this time, I bought them a red heat lamp. They are warm and toasty in my LIVING ROOM. One more REALLY motivating reason to get the chicken coop finished!
