Anticipation

Things are getting exciting around here; our chickens will be arriving in two weeks! A few months ago we decided that after 10 years of stealing my dad's eggs, it was time we got some hens of our own. So we contacted Murray McMurray and ordered some chickens. Brett has been converting part of my dad's old barn into a chicken coop and I have been worrying that I won't be able to keep 20 one-day-old chicks alive. You might remember that I am deathly afraid of chickens, but I am hoping that raising them from tiny fluff balls will help with this. Fortunately, I grew up on this farm and am completely prepared to exchange about half the chickens we start with for gross stories about their untimely deaths. I'll keep you posted... we are very excited!

Hmmm... Pushing Up Daisies, you have me very intrigued as to who you are! You are definitely a high school insider since you know that story... thanks for stopping by and for the comment! Pamela, I'm sure we'll have eggs to share so you won't have to be jealous for too long!
