Chickies!

Hello girl friends! We finally bought chickens! This is Minnie and me posing INSIDE the chicken run on her first day home! Minnie is the easiest to catch because she's the smallest.We bought 3 little pullet hens- one for each of us. They won't lay until mid summer but that will give us time to build a little chicken tractor built so our eggs will be grass fed yummy!That's Minnie in the middle on their roost in the bunny barn. Yes, they share their indoor space with Isabella the bunny! The grands named the other two chickies but I can't remember what. I'll have to call the grands and ask them.


We finally have sun in Idaho! Hurray! It's still really cold at night but the sun during the day more than makes up for it. I won't be putting up the pool anytime soon, though. ☺


Happy Mother's Day to all you moms!

Your chickens are so cute! I have just "graduated" my chicks from the pool to their chicken run too. Aren't they fun? Happy Mother's day to you.

Hi Holly, I like your chickies! They look like the kind that might lay blue or green eggs! Happy Mother's day.

Awwww Holly, they are so sweet. I love my chickens. One of mine is named Minnie too. You are going to have so much fun. You should see how good my strawberry bed is coming in from throwing the shavings from the chicken coop in it each week. The plants are incredibly huge!
Enjoy your girls!

Hi Hollie Sweetie...
Oh my goodness just look at you. Aren't you a breath of fresh country air? I love your smile and that little chick of yours, well she is just cute as a bug. You are one happy MOMMA I do believe.

Can't wait to see them start laying. I SO loved Grandma's fresh eggs. The yolks were so bright and golden, and they had the most delish taste, not like store bought.

Thank you for sharing sweet girl. Have a beautiful Mother's Day. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
