10 day old chicks - finally I have girls!

The Cosmos blessed me with two sons, I thought I wanted girls to cook and craft with but I did get over it and adjust to boys and one out of the two likes cooking and craft!  A Mother of my youngest son's friend has two sons and has just found out she is expecting twin boys, she is a little disappointed.  Today three girls arrived at my house, Poppy, Rosie and Daisy (named by my six year old).  They are the chicken variety.  They look quite exhausted with their adventures.  They are cheaping away in the living room.  The dog is bannished to the kitchen and she isn't happy about it.  The budgie however seems delighted to have company.  My 14 year old did not want chickens but thinks these are great and keeps asking if he can hold one.  The six year old did a victory dance when I told him the chooks had arrived.  He told me tonight he has always wanted chickens.  I have chicken researched myself senseless, to the point of obsession.  My youngest has gone to bed tonight reading the chicken care manual.  The chicks will be 10 days old tomorrow.  Seven had to go back to the 'Farm' today as I felt three was a sensible amount to take and couldn't take any more.  Everyone at work has said they will buy eggs off me, what they don't know is I will charge £1.50 for each egg!  I will try and get pictures of the 'Girls' tomorrow. 


  1. Sounds like your boys will have a lot of fun!!
    Enjoy them! I'll wait for the pics!

  2. I didn't want to be an instigator so I kept quiet when you posted about the egg hatching in your classroom, but I really wanted to tell you how easy keeping a few chickens is, how much fun it is to produce your own eggs, how your kids will LOVE having chickens in their backyard, etc. I'll tell you now, YOUR ADVENTURES WITH CHICKENS IS GOING TO BE SO MUCH FUN!!

  3. Snohomish, how good are you? Not wanting to be an instigator :) It will be good when the chickens are in the backyard and laying eggs, currently they are taking up the Living room, and getting watched more than the TV, if anyone goes out they phone home and ask how the babies are. They are so cute, charging around like busy bodies one minute and then suddenly knodding off to the point of falling over. These Spring babies are so addictive.


I appreciate and enjoy reading all of the feedback from your comments. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and sharing your thoughts.
