Get your oohs & aahhs out of the way now, because things are about to get ugly.
I agree. The chicks are adorable.
Even with muffin cup tutus.
My kids made me do it.
But the cold hard truth is, chicks are only cute for about 9 hours.
Then they start getting those non-fuzzy feathers and it all goes downhill from there.
We had chickens when I was a kid but they were far from the house. Maybe a quarter mile. So I'd go get the eggs, throw some corn at them, and be on my way.
I'd love nothing more than to move these Henriettas a quarter mile away!
Let me tell you a little secret that is apparently written in the Chicken's Guide to Life.
They love to poop on cement.
I'm not gonna lie....It's pushed my mama drama a bit to the edge at times. But seriously....don't I have enough to deal with WITHOUT chicken poop that magically appears out of nowhere. These 15 14 10 9 8 chickens better lay the heck out of them eggs come fall, or we'll be having fried chicken for Thanksgiving!
And a clean porch!
No chickens were harmed for this blog post. Yet.
