Nothing says spring like chicks! We added three new girls to our flock this week. Once again, I went with Ameraucana and I am hoping that if we handle them often and love them up, they will be friendlier than our last crew. It’s a funny thing- our boys love nothing more than yard work and chores involving rakes and shovels. They have pint-sized garden tools and gloves, and are always eager to help out. They’re at an age now where they can help out with some of the responsibility of cleaning the coop and keeping the food/ water/ hay fresh. Although we are raising city kids, I love the idea of having the boys learn how to take care of farm animals and tend a garden. Who knows, one day we may end up living the farm life! A girl can dream. For now…urban chickens it is! If you’re new here and you’d like to read my entire chicken saga, including how I helped legalize chicken keeping in Providence, click here!
