It's like Green Acres without the sparkly Gabor sister


Did I mention we hatched a bunch of baby chicks last week? Oh, we did. And they are too cute. Though not cute enough for me to consider keeping them. But, cute nonetheless.

Last week we got home from a birthday party and Thomas went out to collect eggs and ta-da! 12 baby chicks were staring at him from the nesting box. We lost one to an unfortunate water bowl drowning incident but the rest are residing comfortably in their brooder our dining room. (No, I'm not kidding.)

Did you ever know someone who had chickens in their dining room? Well, you do now...

We once had baby ducks (In the house). Their names were A and B.

They are really, REALLY cute.

do you still have some to get rid of? We have all been saying that my mom needs to start raising chickens now that Joe is gone for college :)

Chicks are awesome and not at all distracting during our married couples small group meetings that take place in the same room.

Mostly.

Wait, @dewde, so farm animals distract from Bible study? North Point should totally mention that point in their leader training...
