Okay, so I am very, very jealous! You do realize this is my dream?! Congrats. the baby chick is adorable. BTW - what ever came of your desire to stain your stairs?

Oh, and I mentioned your site on my blog again the other day - "Sweet Surprises - Featured."

Happy Spring!

Chickens! We had chickens when we were kids. Just for the fun of it! It was great!

The baby chick is adorable!

Marsel said...

Love 'em!

Jessica said...

Gosh those eggs are pretty. I do think their colors would make beautiful paint colors, you know? Oh, I wish I had chickens!

You know that you are totally tempting me now that we have the yard for this and an actual place to do it (If Jim could find another place to put his lawn mower!). Hmmmm.... They are seriously cute.

Marcia said...

Great pics! The last one made me laugh out loud. :)

Rosa said...

Sweet! That is my dream. I want to have chickens. My boy was talking about owning a farm and having dairy cows and chickens. He said he will help me work after watching television. Have your children been helpful (I'm sure they have, but curious)?

lisa said...

the puff balls are beautiful. I can't wait to get started on making it. I'm trying to convince my husband to let me put them in our room. Thats not going all that well. We don't have any girls, just three boys (who thinks its too girly).

Anywho, I guess I'll just put them in my home office.

Thanks again and best wishes :)

Wish I had time for chickens in my backyard. Love the pics.

Larissa said...

Congrats on the new additions! I want chickens too but we don't have a fenced property and i'm not sure how the dogs and cat would feel about chickens.
