There are lots of pets that I have agreed to through the years...dogs, cat, fish, hamster, hermit crabs, birds, gerbil, frogs and turtles...AND now chickens. Corrine has saved her money, read library books and begged endlessly so today we added 7 Rhode Island Red Pullets to our family. I'm not sure what their survivability will be with 3 curious three year olds and a fearless four year old willing to lead the crew to the chicks. However, we have bought all that the books said we need for chicks and now we'll see how our young farmer Corrine does with her brood of chicks.
Provided we have some survivors, in a few weeks, our May project will be building a chicken coop. If anyone wants to help, just let us know!
Of course, we'll blog it!
