Seven baby bantams
Last night, we got seven baby bantams, which are just small chickens. They're from Tractor Supply, so we don't know what breeds they are yet or whether they're roosters her hens, but that's half the fun.
I love getting new chicks, but it's always a little nerve-racking for the first few days because they're so fragile when they're young. Luckily, this bunch seems really healthy.
Because warm weather is nowhere in sight, they'll be staying in my master bathroom for the next two months or so. (Calling it the master bathroom is really a misnomer, because it's essentially the "bird room." We don't even use it for a bathroom, just for baby birds, injured birds, or any other foul that needs to be indoors.)
We're planning on getting some more standard sized chickens, all hens but are going to wait until these little ones are ready to go outdoors.#fopp chickens
