Why Chickens?

Last year, I bought a chicken coop that was made by someone that I love dearly and decided to raise some chickens. Well... we'll see how this quest develops as Spring fades into Summer and the chicks arrive in early June!

Chicks On Order

The chicks have been ordered from www.mypetchicken.com and should arrive in early June.  I wanted them earlier, however when you're ordering baby chicks via the mail and you're choosing different breeds, they batch ALL of the chicks by the furthest delivery date.

I couldn't make up my mind exactly which "cold weather" breed I should get so I ordered one of these and two of those.... amazing how quickly they add up! So, 15 little baby chicks will be here sometime in early June and by the time they're old enough to lay eggs, it will be about Thanksgiving from what I've read.

I'll fill you in on all the other things I've been up to over the next few months so you can get an idea of how this all developed!


  1. Can't wait until you get your chicks and hear the stories of your flock!

  2. I'm just so excited! Can't wait for them to come in either :) Thanks for following me.

  3. I can't wait to be there and take pictures. They are SOOO cute!
