Peeps again

After almost a year of chicken hiatus, we’ve finally taken the plunge again. We got some eggs from a generous friend, dusted off the incubator, and three weeks later…

Now these little ones need a proper residence. I know, I know – we’ve got the it all backwards again, but at least now my husband will have the motivation to build a coop. I look forward to seeing what he comes up with.

As cute and fuzzy as baby chicks are, and you can be sure they’re a huge hit around here, what I really look forward to is an established coop with a flock of adult hens, a rooster or two, and fresh eggs every day.

  1. When I was in my teens a woman gave us a Bantam hen and some eggs. My sister and I were fascinated by the whole process! Our dog stood watch over the next pretty much the whole time, and never made a single move to harm mummy or the chicks. The hen made it quite clear the cat wasn’t welcome and the cat made herself scarce.

    I don’t remember what became of the birds; we must have given them back to the lady or handed them to my grandparents. We didn’t have enough space for them, and is wasn’t legal to keep them in a residential neighborhood, but my grandparents had a small flock on their farm.
