For the last several months, Kara and I have been talking about sustainable living. One of the things we've talked about is getting chickens. Good fresh eggs are expensive. And I think that chickens will give Luken a great learning opportunity. We have the perfect spot for them too. So, we decided to get some pullets. I told Kara that I don't really want to raise peeps. I already have a baby. I don't want to have to keep chicken babies safe from the cats and dog.

Kara called me from work yesterday and said that she'd gotten a great deal on peeps. Ok. I made them a home in a box.

Here are some pictures of my brood.

Aren't they cute?

Glad to hear you will be getting chickens soon! YAYYY! I have ALWAYS wanted some. One day. Think Chickens make good pets in city apartments?

Awwww! So cute!! :-)

We want chickens but aren't sure they would work in our yard. Maybe this could work for us too!! Hee Hee.

they may not not make it to produce "good fresh eggs" as i suspect they may have the fate of the vietnamese delicacy of day old chick.
