They’ll all be teenagers getting ready for the prom before we know it.

Trust me, it’s true!

Sleep well,




  1. I’m probably jumping the gun, but will you put them in the same house as your others?


    1. yes we will, but not till July or August, when their almost fully grown.

    Nothing is as cute as a chick. My daddy always gave my brother and me one for Easter, and that is still one of my favorite memories.


    1. what did you do with them when they were bigger lulu?


      1. lulu says:

        When the chicks became chickens or roosters, they were taken to my grandmother’s farm where after a while they mysteriously disappeared. I think they ended up on the Sunday table. I didn’t eat chicken until I was an adult!

    First night with our six chickens. Our heat lamp got the cage to over 100 so we unplugged it for a while. Never an issue of heat in this house so I think we won’t use the light all the time or perhaps put it on a timer so it doesn’t get so hot in there.


    1. yeah, that’s too warm, try a lower watt bulb.
