Gettin’ Ready for the Girls!

A new little baby boy won’t be the only addition to our farm this year! By the end of next month we hope to have a whole gaggle of little chicks! I am SUPER excited about this. A farm doesn’t feel all too legit without livestock, am I right?

I’ve always dreamed of having hens in my backyard and this felt like the best time to make that happen. While I’ve been researching breeds and chicken care, Jay has been busy getting the girls’ space ready before we bring them home. We’ll have the coop up by the end of next week. Spoiler alert: it’s going to be adorable.

In the meantime, why not share some super dreamy inspiration pics of other backyard chicken farmers:

      • I don’t know what kind yet…our little local feed store has chicks every spring. They have a few different breeds. We have a chicken coop on our farm already……it is old but all it needs is a new door, and some laying boxes. I have been wanting chickens for years. We always had chickens growing up. I love Bantums….. Their tiny eggs were so cute to collect when I was a kid. I might get Bantums down the road. I will probably start with a breed that is hardy to Texas. Do you know what breed you are going to get?
