I said their house was here, but really only 3 of the 5 boxes have arrived. Which we discovered only after driving downtown to the Greyhound station on Wednesday. And as of this morning, one more is waiting in baggage claim. COME ON 5th box. Get here already!
Which means we can’t exactly pick up our chickens until the coop is assembled. So in the meantime, I’m distracting myself with fantasy additions to our flock.
If we were raising them from chicks, we would have to get at least a few of these guys, but I think we’re going to start with semi-grown hens for our first adventure in backyard chickens. Dealing with the incubator in our guest room is a little more than we’re ready to handle at this point. But for future reference, I NEED one of those lacey ones. And a Silkie, which is apparently the lap dog of the chicken world.
Still hoping we can pick up our little flock this weekend. You all will be the first to know if we do.
