Hello dear friends!
Well…two weeks ago our first foster care placements went home. We miss them dearly, but we are glad we got to be their bonus family for 5 weeks. We are taking a short break before our next placement just while we have some family in town over spring break. Then, we will be so excited to open our home to a new placement of a couple of kiddos : )
Meanwhile, we’re diving into a new adventure- backyard chickens! We have talked about having chickens for years, so it has been a lot of fun actually making it happen. Plus, we like to bring a little mid-west to this sunny, sandy land.
For our first flock we decided to make life a little easier and skip the high-maintenance chick-phase. So our flock is 8 weeks old. We each picked a hen. The girls picked “yellow ones : )” AKA Buff Orphingtons. Mr Manlove and I picked Barred Rocks.
Mr Manlove did a good job engineering our little coop.
