I know I've been MIA for a while, but what can I say life happened! But I have missed you all! And I have missed posting to my little ole blog.
So to catch you guys up let me give you the low-down! First off, the most exciting news is we found out that my Son and DIL are expecting twin girls in July!! We are over the moon excited! They have a precious 2 year old little girl, so their house will be bursting with PINK!!
Next I had some babies myself, actually 5! Fertile right? No not that! I finally got my baby chicks about 3 weeks ago and they are precious!
Sydney doesn't know what to make of them!
They are 3 Buff Orpingtons and 2 New Hampshire Reds. Of course they already have names. They are Delilah, Layla, Maggie Mae, Maybelline and Roxanne.
Can you guess where their names are from? They are all named after some of my favorite songs! They are growing so fast! These pics are from when I first got them, and now they have started to feather out! I'm a proud Mama!

I've nicknamed them the Steel Magnolias! This is their coop where hopefully they will be moving to soon. I purchased it from My Pet Chicken
They have been so helpful for giving this rookie chicken Mom advice and answering I'm sure some really dumb questions. I would highly recommend them to you!
We had a lot of work to do behind the pool to get the coop ready to go there. Clearing huge 30 year old Azaleas, leveling the ground and having a concrete slab poured for the coop to sit on. It's been quite a process. But we figure once we do it right the first time, it should be very easy to maintain.
We just had a load of pine mulch delivered and we spent an afternoon spreading it all! Next Mike is going to enclose the sides on either end of the pool with fence and screen doors, to give them an area all to themselves. We keep saying that these chicks hit the jackpot when I picked them! Because their home is going to be awesome!

So that's where I've been! I'll be back later this week!
Have a great day!
