5 new chicks

This morning, my husband discovered one of the Rhode Island Red hens died.

He mentioned that he heard the chickens crackling loudly in the backyard. Since both backyard gates are locked from the inside, we concluded that maybe a dog had sneaked into the backyard.

After husband buried the dead chicken in the garden plot, I told him I would go to the farm feed store to get new chicks. So this afternoon, I brought the kids to the store and bought five of them. After we got home, I housed them in the guinea pig cage and kept them on the patio.  DD1, DD2 and I are looking forward to seeing them grow into beautiful hens.
