I love fresh eggs and our family eats a lot of them! We've talked about getting chicks for awhile and I couldn't pass up the chance to use the fantastic hen house and run that is on the property we are renting. So earlier this week, on one of the coldest days of the year, I went out and bought four chicks. By the next day I was convinced that four wasn't enough so I went back for three more.
All three kids love them and especially Anellah which is interesting because she is the least interested in animals and has the highest tendency to be fearful of animals. The chicks, however, are her thing. She sings to them, reads books to them, and tells them goodnight. It's awfully cute.
I'm having trouble getting good photos of the chicks since since their heatlamp is red but hopefully you can use a little imagination to see how sweet they are.
So here we are, living with three kids sharing a bedroom and seven chicks in the living room. It's a good thing we don't have a dog or this trailer might just explode!
