I've Heard a Peep

Spring has definitely arrived at Harvest Lane Cottage. Not only do we have flowers coming up everywhere,





we also have the sweet little peeps of baby chicks filling our back porch room. We have 6 little Buff Orpington, Three Rhode Island Red, and One Barred Rock Hen. Why the mix? Because each of my three younger children bought the ones they wanted. My only stipulations were that they buy pullets and take care of them.





















Hopefully, they'll all be hens. If not, I guess they'll be supper. Either way, they'll be food. I try to teach the children that farm animals are for food; but, we give them the best life we can while they're here by caring for them well.
Happy Sunday!
Laura

  3. Your flowers are lovely! And oh how I love you're little chicks. In fact, I'm quite envious. This is something I'd love to have around my house. You're babies are lucky children.
