Its that time of year for all our kids in 4-H to get their birds. We just picked up ours today from our local Franklin County UT office. I went with Rhode Island Reds this time. Had the buff orpingtons and black astralorps. (however you spell those) Needed to try something new. If my dogs mess with these than I will be giving away some dogs here soon.

I wonder how long my 9 year old will feed and take care of em.

Eh. :confused: Just went to check on chicks and found the first fatality.

I dont know what happened. Somehow the little bird was under the water bottle smashed to death. At this death rate I will be out of chickens in 26 days. I hope I can improve that number a wee bit.

Dont think my kids were messing with it cause we just cleaned out the box, added water and food a bit ago. Unless my wife was clumsy enough to lay the water bottle on a chick its a mystery to me.

One less mouth to feed though.

We will be getting our chicks in soon hopefully. We've ordered some Dominques, Orpington Roosters and Rhodies too. No chick chain for my kids, even though we are big into 4-H. The smell of 25 chicks in the garage is more than I can handle. :eek:
