Our family will be a little larger next month. DH has ordered 24 day old chicks, 12 Rhode Island Reds and 12 Barred Rock hens. I have really missed having chickens and the fresh eggs they gave us. We will have some for ourselves and hopefully will be able to sell a few to neighbors. I don't know of anyone who doesn't like free run fresh eggs. We are trying to grow/raise most of food right here on our farm. I will be posting pictures when they arrive. The weather has been great here lately. I went out to our Quilters' Guild meeting today and didn't even need a coat. I don't ever remember not needing a coat in March up here in Canada. It was kind of nice actually.
