When I was little, I always could sense that spring was coming as soon as the shipment of baby chicks and ducklings arrived at our local “Feed & Seed” store. Mama would always say that she would buy us baby chickens just in time for Easter…Love her!!! I was surprised to come home on Valentine’s Day to six baby chickens and to the news that my ‘Farm Boy’ husband had ordered thirty more!!! He ordered the chickens from a hatchery and got the phone call from the post office this past Monday morning at 6 am, telling him “his babies were ready for pick up”! Ha!! As with tradition, the hatchery included an ‘odd ball’ chicken, which I have fondly named “Ugg” because he has “Ugg” boot-like feet. “Gracie” the dash hound has a reputation for EATING farmyard chickens, so this photo shows her intense temptation! Hehe!!! Here’s to baby chickens, tempted dashhounds and a wonderful spring!
