So now we have 11 mouths to feed in our house. With some love and care though these little girls will be feeding us eggs next year. I can't wait! For now the kids are all thrilled to have 4 chickens living in the kitchen. I have to admit they are cute. The lady at the farm supply store looked at me like I was a crazy person when I asked if there was gluten free chick feed. I don't allow gluten foods in the upstairs kitchen where the chicks live though so it really was a reasonable question. :lol:

Cute! Play with them as much as possible so they'll enjoy tolerate being played with when they're grown.

They get played with a lot ... maybe even too much.

They do have names. Our 5 year old named one Chickie, our two older girls named one Fifi, I named one Bennie (mmmmm... eggs bennie) and our 15 year old son named one Killbot. Teenage boys are so weird. :blink:

Yup, 2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes. They are 9 days old today and already escaping from the bin we have them in. Oh dear.

Chicken Killer is a good dog name. We had a rabbit named Stew who got eaten by a cougar but my Dad always threatened to have Rabbit Stew for dinner one night.

Cute! I so wish I could have chickens. I currently rent and I don't think my landlord would take to kindly to it. :blink:

Maybe someday.... ;)

Someday! I've wanted chickens for years but we were renting and then there were a few years after we bought this house that my husband was living and working 2 hours away and we weren't sure if we were still going to be here long term. As soon as his long-awaited transfer came through and we knew we were going to be living here permanently we ordered our chicks. They are so sweet... a bit cranky right now with the molting and everything but cute and fun for the kids to watch.

We're going to be looking at buying in the next year or two (as soon as my hubby has been well established at his job and we know it is where we are staying for sure). So I'm sure it will come sooner or later...one of my criteria for a house has always been a big yard so I can have a garden (I currently have a container garden on my patio) and room for "pets". I hope we can find a place that will let us have chickens in the back yard but it's just a dream right now...
