I remember the day...
Chickenpox was working its way through many kids in our circle of friends.
We had been discussing building a chicken tractor and getting chicks. What better time to get chicks than when we were already stuck at home? Perfect entertainment opportunity! I called my husband to make sure it was okay to jump in with both feet and go pick up the chicks. I must have stated my case as to why we needed the chicks now very well because he said yes. My mother-in-law came over and watched our girls while I went to the store.
With butterflies in my tummy and a quick prayer that chicks cannot contract chickenpox, I picked out 6 chicks (2 Rhode Island Reds and 4 Ameraucanas). I purchase the chicks, some starter feed and came home.
We spent hours watching the little chicks interact, sleep, eat and play. Kylie, especially, spent most of her day sitting there watching and holding them.
Ah, my heart still melts.
