Our new chicks

 Today we bought a dozen one-day-old Rhode Island Red and Aracauna chicks along with a heat lamp to keep them warm, and chick feed. We were asking so many questions,  about how to care for them,  that we gathered a crowd of farmers who congratulated us on our new adventure. They gave us advice and seemed pleased that we were embarking on a new venture. They asked us if we had a chicken coop to keep them in.

 I felt proud as I said "yes", since I've been keeping three hens since the summer. Thanks to the help of my husband and in-laws from El Salvador who had a family farm, we have been running a family farm for a year now.
Now we are really chicken farmers!

That is so wonderful! I'd like to do this one day. The girls must love this especially Christina.
