new farm members

I want to have chickens on the farm but I was going to wait...then I saw an ad on  Craig's list and made a spur of the moment decision.  The poultry farmer had the breeds I wanted at only a dollar a, here they are:  I asked for 6 silver laced Wyandottes and 4 Light Brahmas and the farmer gave me an extra one of each...I have 12 chicks!


  1. I am going to get some too! I have been scanning CL for a kennel that I can "lid" and a coop. I see coyotes running thru the yard all the time so chickens won't get to run free here. How exciting...or should I say "eggsiting." (Sorry) Very cool, and you can't beat the price. Babies are coming to your farm!

  2. Oh my gosh, Sterling does the same thing! I had to move the chairs away from the table on my paver deck because I kept finding him on top of the table...How cute are those chicks...Thanks for the update, I am so glad to see updates from you :)

  3. Awwww, the chicks are so cute. The barn I board at has chickens that nest in Mal's stall. I find an egg under his feed trough -- and sometimes the chicken pretending I can't see her in her little shavings nest preening with bits of hay here and there put around her. My uncle in New Mexico taught me that horses help chickens survive coyotes!

  4. Just catching up on your blog! Love the updates. We have chickens, too! You will love them, they are so much fun and they give you breakfast! :-)
