Back in November (two days before Thanksgiving in fact) we added to the general chaos around here by adopting six baby chickens. As I have only briefly mentioned them before, and they have taken on such a significant role in our daily life, I thought I ought to provide an update on these funny girls. At least, we think (and hope) they are all girls. The kids adore playing with, holding, and petting the chickens. Quite often Cooper can be found carrying Elsa around the yard as she is the smallest and the nicest. For now Mama and Daddy meet the basic needs of chickens such as feeding, watering, and cleaning out the coop, but we look forward to teaching the kids animal care and responsibility as they (both kids and chickens!) get bigger.
