Chickens, Phase I

Ordered my chickens today, and got most of my supplies together!

Yes, those are rabbit cages. I'll be brooding the chicks in them out in my garage until it's warm enough outside to build the coop and put them out.

My lovely friend and neighbor Elizabeth, who's a chicken expert and my daughter's 4H leader.

Oh, and I got my hair done! Not that that has anything to do with chickens :)

Yea, chickens, spring can't be to far behind.

Are you doing meat or laying chickens?

Katie said...

Both! I'm getting cornish roasters for meat, and buff orpingtons and black giants for eggs (and showing at 4H).

I'm gonna love following the great chicken roost!

I can hardly wait 'til the chickens arrive! It's going to be fun watching them over the next few months.
