We’ve Grown by 12 Feet!
Yesterday’s big news? Settlement. Today – we’re expecting! Chickens, that is – 6 cute, yellow, fluffy chickens. I like the idea of fresh organic eggs, and should we decide to use them for meat there’s something to be said for knowing where that meat came from. Chris was on the fence about adding critters to the farm just yet but as soon as we walked into TSC and heard them chirping, I was sold.
After much ado, we’ve finally come up with the names: Omelette, Frittata, Benedict, Quiche, Sunny and…Bob (she’s going to have a complex, but that’s okay.) We don’t have a coop yet, but the good news is they’ll be under a heat lamp in the basement for the next few weeks until it’s warm enough for them to get out. The plan for now is to clean up one of the barns, but we’ll see.
