Newest Additions

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!

  1. What a neat idea, I think they should do well IF they aren't handled too much. Great idea to start raising your own chickens. This year just a few, next year more, etc until you can raise enough to feed your family one Sunday dinner of fried chicken!! lol!! Good Luck to your daughter on her farming adventure. But best of all I like your willingness to let her try,
