Yesterday afternoon, 12 baby chicks arrived in a cardboard box in our kitchen. They’re en route from Eggplant Urban Farm Supply in St. Paul to my parents’ chicken coop in Wisconsin. With a two night stop over at our place. We’re baby chick sitters.
Today I have the day off to keep an eye on water and the heat lamp. I’m also supposed to be working on laundry, homework and cleaning the house for a Cinco de Mayo get together tonight. None of that is happening with the tiny ‘chirp-chirps’ coming from that box. Every time I turn around I’ve wandered back over to see what they’re up to.
How could you resist this?
See what I mean?
Baby chicks are contagiously cute.
And a reminder that YES. SpringÂ is coming. No matter how much snow falls in the month of May.
I’m planning a great weekend hanging out with these girls. Hope you enjoy yours as well!
