more chicks...and a kitchen island peek

Well....it seems more chicks have made their way into our home.
Last week I saw a sign at our feed store that more bantam chicks were coming....so I of course called and had them hold some for me.
All the chickens we've bought this year are bantams....which is a small type of chicken....I'm talking like 1/3 the size of our regular heavy breed chickens....it's so cute.
So the way I explained to my husband why we need to keep buying chicks is that we need twice as many bantams since their eggs are also 1/3 the size of regular eggs. He seemed okay with my logic....although being that they're so cute....I don't think he minds.
Now it looks like next weekend....weather permitting....we'll he'll be knocking down our old coop and building a new pretty one.....I can't wait.

Before I go....I thought you'd like to see a peek at our new kitchen island.
In case you didn't see my kitchen island inspiration post.....you can see it here.
Can you tell which one inspired me the most?


  1. Oh be still my heart! What cutie patooties, Andrea!!! I wish we could have chickens here, but I would worry about raiding raccoons, possums, fox, and coyote out here. I can hardly wait to watch your new babies grow up to see what they look like! :) Loving your new island, too! Gorgeous!!!!!
