For some reason Spencer decided we needed chickens. We'd considered it for quite awhile, but weren't sure we were ready to jump into farm animals again! Having Max, the cat, in the house seemed to be just enough! However, Spencer can be just as persuasive as his mother always was, so, Saturday we went to the hardware store and bought 15 baby chicks! Now for another project at the "Funny Farm"....building a chicken coop! Fortunately they will be in a box in the garage for several weeks, giving us time to get what we want built and ready for them. We are anxious to have fresh eggs again! Hopefully by Spring.
