Some people collect stamps. Other, coins. Still other collect Beanie Babies, or beer bottle caps (wait....I do that too), or baseball cards.
Us? We collect chickens.
New less-than-a-week old Americauana/Araucana chicks. We got 10.
After moving the new chickens out of the chick-u-bator and into the chicken pen, we had an unoccupied chick-u-bator in the shed. Since it's before hay season, and the chick-u-bator is just out, we grabbed 10 blue egg layers when we went to get vaccines for the sheep and milking-time oats for the cow.
Thing #2 loves baby chicks.
He called this one "Brownie."
After getting these 10 new chicks and dispatching Corn the Rooster, we're at 41 total chickens of varying ages.
