I guess now we feel like "real urban homesteaders" finally. (As of starting an urban homesteading page of nearly 6000 wasn't enough!) There is something about raising chickens that makes you feel bonified, if that makes sense. People are already asking to come over in the spring when our garden is pretty and the chickens are living the good life in their coop, and we will. We already have egg orders flooding in and these chicks aren't even a month old! It's going to be fun, and it already is.
I had to take a pic of the feed store, it's that cool.
That is one excited little boy!
Here is one of our Buff Orpingtons.
One of the two Cucko Marrans and a very happy little one. Can't wait for those chocolate colored eggs!
Sarah has become "mommy" to the chicks. She cleans their box twice a day and is quite protective of them.
