Just returning from a weekend in Wisconsin for a wedding and to celebrate my parentsâ€™ new arrival. They are the proud caregivers of 51 baby chicks, specially delivered at 7:30 Friday morning to the local feed store. Happily chirping all the way home, these little fuzz balls are irresistibly cute.
This Thursday I will have the chance to chicken-sit for 5 Ameraucana/Easter Egger chicks from Eggplant Urban Farm Supply in St. Paul. They will be added to my dad’s flock for a total of 56 new additions! I’ll be sure to post some photos of my “charges”, their living quarters, and some info on raising urban chickens when they arrive!
Congratulations to all the happy parents getting their backyard chickens this spring.
