The Chicks Have Arrived!

Yellow Easter Egger Chick

In case you are not following my Facebook Page, I have a huge announcement: The chicks have arrived!  5 puffy balls of Easter Egger cuteness arrived in the mail yesterday. Alright, maybe that isn’t a huge announcement, but it is a big deal to us.  We are embarking on raising some urban, backyard chickens starting with chicks.  While, I grew up out in the country and spent many an hour terrorizing my neighbors chickens.  It is a hell of a lot of difference from being responsible for their welfare.  So I would say my experience with chickens ranges form next … Read more…

We had a few friends and family joining us to celebrate for the second time. To mark the historic occasion, and because I was feeling nostalgic, Granny and I decorated her house with old school balloons, bows, party hats, and confetti.

We used party hats over baby food jars to weigh down the balloon centerpieces … Read more…
