We didn't know if we would ever have chickens again, but with the economy taking a nose dive, we decided it was probably best to buy some babies. We figure it will make us a little more self-sufficient.
A couple of days ago, our 6, Araucana, one day old, little hens (we hope they're hens) came in and Jim has been nurturing them ever since.
Our little Araucana's will eventually lay Easter eggs. They actually lay colored eggs--usually green shells. What a great treat!
