Baby Chicks

This year I decided to add more chickens to our dwindling flock; a decision that was hard to make because the price for new chicks in today's market starts at 3-dollars each.
We purchased two different batches of chicks just 3-weeks apart in age. It's amazing how quickly chicks grow. I'm hoping they all live to adulthood so we can recoup some of our investment.
I really love raising chickens, they have a way of bringing a smile to your face each time you look at them. Not to mention the wonderful eggs they produce each day!

We are about to get more chicks too. The 8 hens we have aren't enough to feed us the eggs we eat each week.

Hens make me smile, too. We might try to hatch our own chicks this fall. We'll see...

WOW that's a lot of money.. but in the long run you'll get more back in eggs and meat.
