Backyard chickens, take two

Take three, if you count the set we fostered in the fall. But these are officially ours, as of last Wednesday when they arrived.

Meghan and Jeremy, the super sweet couple who runs Dare 2 Dream Farms, delivered them right into the Eglu. Anyone on the search for a little flock of their own in the LA or SF area should definitely contact them! They have all sorts of breeds, in every age… two weeks, six weeks, eight weeks, twelve weeks (ours), on up through six months or so. It’s incredibly perfect, having someone else raise the peepers until they’re ready for the outdoor coop.

I can’t wait to start with teeny chicks one day when our kiddos are older, but at the moment I don’t think our tiny house can handle a baby chicken nursery too.

Guess who’s completely obsessed with his new friends out back?

If it were up to him he’d spend equal parts of the day gazing longingly at his chickens and eating dirt out of the raised beds. Do all babies insist on eating dirt??

Baby legs!

    I would be right out there with him. I think our outfits might match too. I’m not so sure that the dimples on the back of my legs would be exclaimed, but they might match too.

    Well, mine eats dirt, but I keep telling myself that there are minerals in dirt. So, it must be ok, right?

    Well timed! There’s actually an article in the NY Times today about babies’ instinct to eat dirt.

    Love the little chickies. Can’t wait to see them grow!

    They are so sweet! Too bad we only have a porch.

    My nieces grew up with chickens and they’re so attached to them that they sit outside and eat breakfast with them every morning.

    Chickens!!! Aw, I love that photo of him staring at the cage. He looks mesmerized. So cute.

    Toddlers + chickens = endless amusement and less TV. That’s how we grew up, anyway. When we got older we moved on to sheep, then horses. But buyer beware, some of us never moved on from the horse stage;)

    More! More chubby baby legs and chickies!

    Baby legs are the best! We have a 5 month old and are looking into getting chickens, so next year I may be able to take a photo of a toddler with chickens, too. Don’t think there’s many cuter things than that!
