Chicks for Easter

This is my newest toy!  I have been saving the $200 bonus that our insurance gives for "living healthy", and finally decided what to get.  I have been wanting chickens ever since we moved out to the country, but I only want a few.  For Easter, each of the kids will get a chick and this will be their home when they get big enough.  I'm going to paint it red, to match the shed behind it.  Hopefully by fall we will eating our home-grown, organic, chemical and hormone free eggs!  The chickens will eat weeds and scraps from the garden, and produce eggs and fertilizer.  I can't wait to get started!!
