Baby Chicks!

 The anticipation was growing as we were awaiting the arrival of baby chickens!  Well, I guess I should clarify that I wasn't anticipating them.  Jeremy and the kids were.  So the call came from the Post office and we headed to collect our new critters.  We were all excited about the eggs we would collect.  Jeremy, Taylor, Jeremy R, and his dad all worked to build a chicken coop.  I am not sure how Jed and Candice always end up getting the brunt end of our ideas but that just seemed like the best place.

 For the first 6 weeks the chicks have to be under a warm light.  We would have to assume that a few would die with in the six weeks and a few did.  Eventually they grew up and gave us Blue Eggs!  The birds were called Easter Eggers.

 Lucky for them, Benita and Luke were visiting at the time and were able to join in the festivities!
