I won't call this Chicken Dinner.....yet
I just had to show you my newest "girls". These babies will grow up to be my laying hens. Believe it or not, there were 16 of the little peepers in this box, and they get shipped via U.S. Mail. I picked them up at the Post Office a couple of weeks ago:
Since they are Rhode Island Red chickens, and because we love san (who is NOT from Rhode Island but she's close), Ashley chose her favorite chicken and named it...Sandi. Sandi likes to take naps on Ashley's stomach:
Makayla couldn't get left out, of course, she had to let Sandi help with the cookie baking on Friday. Yup, a live chicken in the kitchen. Sigh.
It's hard to believe these little fuzzy peepers are going to grow up and be big fat red hens in just a couple of months, isn't it?
