Spring is Coming!

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!
