Did I ever tell you we got CHICKENS?!!
Yeah I ordered them in March & the lady said end of April you should get them....well the lady didn't call till the day before Evelin was born. So IN the hospital I had to tell her I couldn't pick up the chickens till after we get home from the hospital.
So we brought home Evee & then we brought home Chickens.
Luckily, my fabulous neighbor's Hen was "sitting" (meaning: she sits thinking she will hatch eggs soon). So we popped the chicks in her cage before the sun came up & BOOM she thought her "supposed eggs" hatched. Now she is raising the chickens as her own.
She teaches the chicks to peck & find food in the dirt, she teaches them to live in the Hen House & she teaches them to follow when they are given grain. So that takes out all the beginning work of having chicks. YEAH!!
But don't worry when the Chicks are "of age" then she will tell them to leave & they can peacefully move into our little Hen house. And voi'la I have egg laying hens!
