Lilly, Pepper, GG and Cricket

dsc01099Did I tell you that we got chicks?  We got chicks.

They are so CUTE.  Right now they are living in a box in the bathtub because they need a warm little habitat.  They are two weeks old now, so on Saturday we can move them to the garage with a heat lamp.

Our bathroom has never been so lively.  All my human smalls love to play with the chicken smalls.  It is just weird that I go in the bathroom to hold and play with my little chicks, Lilly, Pepper, GG, and Cricket, and then I go in the kitchen and poke the poultry defrosting on my counter to see how it’s doing. 

However we will never eat our chicken pets.  Um, just their eggs.  Hopefully blue ones.

    Horses, chicks, what next? Are you turning into pretend farmers? I think the chicks are as cute as they can be. What fun I had as a kid on my grandfather’s ranch. Every morning Coco handed me a brass and copper basket (which I still have) and sent me out to the chicken coop to get the eggs we would eat for breakfast. I loved this so much. And, yes, the eggs definitely tasted better than store-bought. You’re creating wonderful memories for all the human smalls.

    For many reasons I can’t believe that you have chicks. But you are winning in the “cool mom” awards. We have a dog and it is just about putting me over the edge.
    Way to be a good mommy!
