I Have Chicks!

I could not resist the temptation any longer. I bought chicks from Tractor Supply.

I think I went a little overboard. I bought 6 silkies, and 5 others that I am not sure of their breeds. 11 chicks!!

and they’ll all be named Bender, Jr.

I am planning on giving about half of them to my neighbor. We usually split a purchase of chicks every year, although this year she is currently in the hospital, so was unable to accompany me to select chicks. I’m hoping some silkies will cheer her up, but I feel like I cannot hold her to taking in these chicks if she wasn’t there initially, so hopefully she still will take some!

And I have an order of chicks shipping to me in June… It’s a good thing I have a chicken mansion to house them. I would say this is way too many chickens for me, but I don’t think such a thing is possible.
