The Chicken Whisperer

I am in an animal-loving mood today after reading this amazing true story (passed along by my sweet mom). I guess a bit of my excitement also comes from the fact that beginning next week…I will have CHICKENS! Remember a while back I contemplated raising a few laying hens. Well, I have not been able to let the idea go and so I decided to follow my instinct and see this through. My four little Auracana chicks (above) will arrive next week and I found a great coop (below) for a steal on Craigslist. I am a bundle of nerves and I have so much to do to prepare for their arrival. But above all, I am excited to be taking another step in the right, sustainable direction.
Oh, and did I mention (in a bragging voice) that my chicks will eventually lay BABY BLUE eggs. I am already a proud parent!

    Yay! I’m so excited for you! They are especially fun to have as chicks. We are trying to find out where we can buy cruelty-free halal meat! and we buy cage-free eggs. 🙂 Hope you had a Happy Easter! ~Malena
