Along with gardening, I wanted to add eggs to our family food independence. Growing our own vegetables, we control what chemicals do NOT go on our food and the kiddos learn not only how to grow their own food but where their food comes from. Having chickens is the same process. We control what the chickens eat and we have family pets. Did I mention how cool chickens are?!
Here are a few photos of our spring baby chicks (2 Brahma, 2 Americana, and 1 Rhode Island Heritage). We purchased our chicks from a local farm store and yes, we name them ❤
