We have babies in our house! Not the human kind, though. The chicken kind. Brian and I have talked about raising backyard chickens for a couple years now. After all the talking, researching, planning, more talking, more researching, more planning, and fence-building, Brian brought home our first six chicks yesterday.
To say I am excited about our chicken babies might be a bit of an understatement. Of course, their fuzzy little selves are pretty hard to resist. But it is more than that. Those six little puff balls are evidence that I am becoming more of the person I ultimately want to be as I journey towards sustainability and self-reliance. I am proud that Brian and I have reached the point where we are ready enough to take the plunge into something so new and exciting (to us). We certainly are not pros at chicken-rearing, but I look forward to learning and growing. And eggs. I’m really looking forward to eggs.
