Of course there are some stipulations - like this is MY project. He just wants to partake of the eggs.
He has already agreed to watch the chicks when I take a weekend getaway with my girlfriends this summer however. And I'm fairly certain I'll be able talk him into building the coop. *wink*
The Little was SO excited today to bring home the new babies. We're working hard on gentle handling and not feeding them his oatmeal raisin cookies and ice cream. Our dog is also a wide open question mark with these new chicks. So far so good - she's merely overly curious but not showing any aggression.
So...without any further ado, please meet the newest little creatures to join our home:
Gretchen, our Black Australorp
Madge - our Buff Orpington
And Lulu - our Light Brahma
Oh my! I'm so excited. Stay tuned for updates this summer as we raise our baby chicks and transfer them later to their new coop.
