New Life Update {Guest Post}

My 10 year old son volunteered to do this post.  :)

Since my brother's post about starting our chicken-selling business we have hatched more baby chicks - 3 to be exact.

And we have our first customer (and possibly a second one), who bought 3 chickens from our first flock. We had a hard time deciding which ones to sell because we loved all of them. But when our 2nd flock hatched, it was a little easier to sell the older ones since we had 3 more to take their place.  :)

Here is a photo of our first flock on bug patrol in Mom's flower garden...

And here are some photos of our second flock..

Mom has claimed this one for herself and named her Gwynevere.

And as of last night, one of our hens is  in the hatching coop setting on another clutch of eggs. Hopefully we'll have another flock of babies in 3 weeks.

We have decided that even if we don't  have a booming business, it sure is fun and educational to watch the baby chicks hatch and grow.  :)
