al & i have talked about having a "mini farm" for a little while now.
the thought of growing our own produce & gathering our own eggs has been something that is super appealing to us, for some reason.
so the other day i bit the bullet & went to buy some baby chicks!! i ended up purchasing araucana chickens because i LOVE the pastel eggs they produce! i seriously can't wait until they start to lay eggs! the kids are already loving them & i think it'll be a fun experience for them to help us take care of them & gather eggs.
gav & i named them haha it was too fun & the names were all over the place (gav .. haha what an imagination he has) but i am happy to say we nailed them down.
we have harriett, mary (gav's favorite), cosette & elana.
currently these little ladies are stationed in our basement under a heat lamp - we need to start shopping for their home so if you have any suggestions as to where to find a chicken coop that doesn't cost $1000, holla!!
we are so excited to watch them grow!! send us all of the good chicken vibes that we have lots of success!
