A week or so ago one of Dad's hens surprised them by hatching out a bunch of chicks. Mom thought they might be fun for the kids to raise over the winter and then hopefully start getting a bunch of eggs come spring. Dad also had this extra cage he had made so they delivered them to some very excited grandchildren.
We now have Clover (the rabbit that seems to be getting out of getting butchered) in one side and the chickens in the other. I think we are beginning to look like farmers and the kids definitely think so but Shh! don't say that to Ken, he is my "City" guy and doesn't want to be a farmer.
