Spring Chickens

It's spring and our children have been busy going through the hatchery catalogs trying to decipher which chicks we'd like to order for our next flock. Lincoln has presented his desire for a "Naked Neck" chicken (no surprise there!)

while Avonlea would love to have some cute (and very small I might add) Silkies.

Norah wants a baby duck

and Isaac couldn't care less (obviously). The final verdict will be revealed in the following weeks! Anyway, I found this interesting hatchery video from Murray McMurray. The kids and I watched it a few times to see how our chicks get to us. Enjoy!
