Busy Saturday!

              This Saturday we did a ton of yard work. You can't probably tell by these pictures though. Jeremiah rented the backhoe from work and we cleaned out all of the tree stumps in our back yard. We also got rid of that ugly dead bush in front of our house. Jer seeded the lawn in the front so hopefully we will have grass soon.
The kids and I raked and cleaned up all of the garbage that the last tenants left or never picked up. I trimmed all of the trees and bushes. The chicken coop area is all clean and ready for the chicks!

Speaking of chicks, I want to introduce you to the newest members of our brood, our Araucanas or (Easter Egg) Chicks! We stopped by Bomgars and saw these adorable chicks and had to get a couple! They lay a colored egg anywhere from light blue to turquoise green! They are originally from Chile and have almost owl-like features. We already named one Cachaton, it means fat cheeks. :-) I can't wait to see how beautiful they will turn out to be!

So cool! They do look like owl's! Really interesting and neat!! What made you guys decide to get chicks and how much reading up did you need to do... Just asking for just in case in the future possibility,LOL!! Are you guys still renting or did you buy?
