Our eggs hatched into nine chicks! They are a lot bigger than this now. I’m posting these older pics because little chicks are so much cuter than big ones.

Soft and fuzzzzzzzy.

Little did we know someone else was being born the same weekend our eggs hatched…

Chia and Columbine are 5 and 6 weeks old now, and we bottle feed them 3x per day, starting at 5:30 am. We’ve had them for two weeks, and they’re part of the family now. They’re super cute and cuddly and SO bouncy, and they have the run of our farm. Which of course thrills the chickens.

When we decided to get goats (five days before we actually got them) David took this stinky old shed and turned it into a goat barn.

Here’s the new and improved version!

He pulled down the walls and door and put in new ones, and added a 2-layer floor. Nice and cozy.

We’ve got a milk herd on our minds, and these goaty little girls are just the beginning.
