And then there were 58 baby chicks

baby chicks

 

Yesterday we added 58 baby chicks to our flock. Of course, it ended up being a very cold night here in SC, but they all made it through and boy are they big eaters! The kids LOVE the baby chicks although our littlest, Faith, tried to pull one of the chicks heads off. I am trying to teach her gentle, I guess I need to work with her a little more.  We are trying to teach our children where our food comes from (not the store!) and how to care for animals (even ones that we might end up eating!).
