I have been wanting chickens for as long as I can remember and I knew when we moved out on property I would maybe get to have some! After months and months of begging george, in one weak moment he agreed! I think it was a “fine, get them if you want but I’m not taking care of them comment.”
I took that as a YES! That was a Saturday and by the next morning the kids and I had a plan for getting and raising chicks! 
Sunday we made a trip to North40 and got us, Bella, Lilly, Pepper, Blacky, Oreo, and  Cocoa! 



We kept them inside in a self made brooder (rubbermade tote and heat lamp). We raised them in the garage for the first 8 weeks. During this eight weeks we went back and forth between building and buying a coop!! We ended up doing a combination! We found a coop on Craigslist that turned out being awesome! We bought it, put it in place, built a run around it and painted and trimmed out the coop to look like our main house! 

It turned out awesome and the girls LOVE their new home!
