Everything is starting to bud because of all the rain. Here are some lilacs by the house. They appear to be purple. I can not wait until everything blossoms, maybe then we can start to identify more mystery trees and shrubs.
About a week ago, Thorny guy and I went to TSC for chick days in hopes of buying 6 chicks. Well not only did they only have meat chickens they only had three left! I was very disappointed.
In order to get the ones I want you have to order 25 chicks! So I went away convinced that this year we would not be getting any chickens...at least until today.
We stopped at a local feed shop in Rosemount to see if they carried chickens. They did not have any, but you could special order them with a minimum of 25 chicks just like at TSC.
So I did. In two weeks we will have 25 chickens, 10 Barred Rock, 5 Buff Orpington, 5 Silver Laced Wyandotte, and 5 Black Australorp. Why you might ask...well they were a lot cheaper than TSC and hopefully when they are bigger we can sell some. Anyone want to buy a chick?
In other news, we bought some barrels off CL for storing all that chicken feed!
