Baby Chickens!

It’s time to restock our chickens! We’ve had our backyard chickens for a couple of years now and it’s been awesome! They’re super easy, they eat table scraps and provide us with tons of eggs and once they stop laying we get to eat free range chicken. They’re starting to get old though so it’s time for some new ones.  Of course,  with our crazy life, time got away from me and I didn’t go and get them at the right time.  When I was finally ready to move on this they were all gone at the local feed store…

I was amazed to learn though that you can actually order them online and they will ship them to your house!  Problem solved.  We got ours from eFowl and it was super easy and cheap!  We elected this time for some variety also which was fun for the kids.  I restocked my Rhode Island Reds but then also branched out and ordered 5 Black Australorps and 5 White leghorns!  Now we just need to keep them away from the cat until they are big enough for the chicken coop…
