Our Chicken Venture

A couple of weeks ago we got baby chicks from the local co-op......they were so cute!  All fuzzy  and chirping.  A few days after we got them, Rick remarked about how much they were eating, I looked at them and thought, is it possible they have grown that much?

These "baby chicks" are huge!  They eat more than any chicks we have ever had.......and they are no longer cute.......they are now in that weird, tween, ugly stage.  I think they are going to be giant chickens,hopefully who lay big eggs.  We use them as pest control, Japanese Beetles have invaded our garden, but no worry.
Every day Rick hand picks the bugs off our plants, and they are given as treats to the "chicks".  Maybe that is why our "chicks" are so big.

We have never had chicks that ate corn from your hands but these do........this chicken venture has turn out pretty interesting.  I can't wait to see what they look like as grown chickens!  I will take photos tomorrow.
Stay tuned for the giant "chicks"!


  1. Awwwww I'd love to see the pics of these fabulously cute chicks!! Take care

  2. In between baby and full grown they do go through that gangly awkward stage don't they?
