Chick Days 2014

As you may have seen on Facebook, K-Man and I bought some baby chicks last night on our date!  We went to the farm store to buy grass seed but came out with 14 chicks instead because I could NOT resist them.  

Chicks are simply too irresistible, aren't they?  

  The kids had no idea we were bringing any home, and they were so tickled!

And because I know someone will ask, here's what we bought:

Rhode Island Reds
Silverlaced Whyandottes
Buff Orpingtons

They are chirping away in my kitchen right now, which I love.  Except this morning around 4:00 AM.  That's when I was reminded how thankful I am not to have any human babies that need me to actually get up and do something.

We'll soon re-home them in the little red hen house, where they'll live happily ever after...or until they stop laying eggs, whichever comes first.  Again, happy to be human because according to those standards...well, Lori would be on her way out.  Ha!

Have a chirpy weekend, folks!

I thought you had brought home chicken fingers for the kids on your "redneck" date not real chicks!

They are so cute! Our kids want chickens badly but not sure what our neighbors would think:)
