Yesterday we got our chickens. The kids were so excited that when I got home from bootcamp at 955am they were already in David's truck buckled in. They entire way to Oneida they were going Cock-a-doodle-do or peep peep peep. Then Emma would say: I want my chickens! Poor thing fell asleep 5 minutes from the meeting point.
Yes it was a hicks version of a drug deal. A F250 pulls into the back corn of TSC parking lot. Two men wearing work boots, work coats, jeans and baseball hats exit two other vehicles. All three men huddle around a small box in the passenger seat of the F250. The small black, yellow fluffy merchandise is quickly displayed before being stuffed back in the box. A handshake with the swapping of $$ and the men quickly return to their trucks, each with a box.
It was that quick, and it was over. we were parents to 20+ chickens.
The kids were crowding David as we tried to move them from the box to their new home! I was suppose to be counting but I kept having to move the kids out of the way. So I am really not sure how many we have:
Finally they got a closer look:
We have mixture of Rhode Island Reds and Barred rock chickens. Most were only a day or 2 old but he gave us some week olds too.
Hopefully we have a lot of hens. I am really looking forward to getting our own eggs! The kids are going to love it!
peep peep till next time!!
