At 6:30 this morning, we received a call from our neighbors saying that they were heading out to pick up our chickens. By 7:00 we were the caretakers of 55 brand new baby chicks. Extremely loud for the first hour or so, they have quieted down to an endurable volume! So the Erber family is venturing into farming, sort of - for a few weeks. 'Cause, see, these little critters ain't no pets or nothin'. They're food, or will be soon. In the meantime, we just hope to keep 'em alive and get 'em growing!
