We are turning into a regular farm here. Have I mentioned that we live on a fifth of an acre in town? Yes, one fifth of an acre.
The borough says that we can have any type of animal here but pigs. So now we have three chickens. I felt it would be a good experience for the kids to watch them grow and take care of them. They can keep track of them in their nature journals. We are going to use Anna Comstock's Handbook of Nature Study to guide us in this little adventure.

Here are a couple of pictures....

This used to be a happy little playhouse. Is it our new barn?

The chicks seem happy here!

A closer look.

Aww they are so adorable. Every sping my dad would buy new chicks for our farm. Brings back memories. I really am sad that my kids miss all of this since we live in town in an apartment. :( Oh well all we have to do is visit Pappy. lol
