The newest addition to our little homestead

I love spring! It brings forth a rebirth and new life. Our Rhode Island Red chicks arrived today and are fun to watch.

Posing for the camera

So fluffy and cute but built for pest control

So much fun to watch them pecking and scratching

All tucked in for the first night in their new home
Looking forward to some fresh free range eggs and less bugs! Chicks are great for teaching a child how to care for livestock and learning where certain foods come from. Children seem to bond with baby animals. That is good because they'll be more apt to take better care of their critters. Not only are chickens beneficial to your garden, they feed you with nutritious eggs. They are a terrific investment.
