Hey Peepster, have you hear this one?
Why was the egg so afraid?
Because it was a little chicken!
Box o' Fluff
The Littles love the peeps!
So soft to feel on hands and cheeks.
Did you hear about the hen who could only lay eggs in winter?
She was no spring chicken!
Why is it so easy for chicks to talk?
Because talk is cheep!
(All settled in.)
The CarpenterSon asked if we could order all Pearl White Leghorns this time around, and I thought, "Why not?" My MIL always, always raised the Pearl Whites and none other. She claimed that they ate less feed and laid more and bigger eggs than any other breed. We do have one, lone Black Cochin. The hatchery sent it along with the others. It has feathered legs. Pretty cute!
The 27 chicks arrived this morning at our feed store, and two of the neighbor grandgirls begged to go along with me to fetch them. Right after we picked up the chicks, we drove to the townie grandgirls' house to let them experience and hold the tiny fluffs before we took them home to their coop. Oh such joy is this!
