A friend of ours has hatched quite a few chicken eggs and we are fostering 12 chicks. They are about 2 weeks old and growing fast. We are doing this for two reasons...One, helping out friends is always a good thing and Two...we need a new rooster. The one we had was getting a bit mean and Nick and Sam would not go outside.
Our friend said that we could have a few of the chicks and our kids have already picked out at least 3. 2 of them are already named... You can see them here on my daughter's blog
Oh the fun of raising chicks :)
