We brought home 4 baby chicks this week! The kids are loving them and so am I. Since it was Spring Break this week, we took a trip out to a local chicken farm. The owner was very informative on all the different breeds that she had and it was fun for the kids. I was forbidden from bringing home any more that 4 (this year) and so it was a tough decision. I went with 2 Welsummers, 1 Barred Rock and 1 Black Star. The Welsummers lay dark brown eggs and I can't wait to see them. I'm just hoping that I don't have any roosters... we'll see.
