Chick Update...

Welcome to the funny farm! We are currently in the chick raising business! Two weeks ago, we got our first 27 chicks from a hatchery out in Iowa...this is what they looked like that day:

Here they are today, at 17 days old. They are WILD little critters!!

We also took some of Russell and Bernice's eggs (pure Dominique) and Pete's Mom has been hatching them for us in her incubator! We had 7 hatch last week. Today, Pete brought home 5 more! There are 13 more eggs incubating, due in a couple weeks..I can honestly say it has been fun, but we are not setting ANY MORE eggs! LOL...We are gonna have TOO MANY chickens!! We will probably have some extra Dominique roosters to get rid of in a couple months! Here are the Dominique babies:

They will be black and white checked like Russell and Bernice when they get big!

Happy Memorial Day!
