I ran into the farm supply store this evening just MINUTES before closing to pick up two bags of pine chips and a little canning jar water dish.
They had a big trough full of red chicks.
They had a big trough full of golden comet chicks.
They had a big trough full of assorted bantams.
I'm not sure how it happened, but the Silkies followed me home.
Really! They just followed me home!
And I'm now banned from the farm supply store until WELL after "chick days" are over. They've never had so many "chick days"! I thought it was safe! Lesson learned... beware of parading chicks.
And Silkies!? They're the hardest to resist!
Oddly enough, I received an email from my Dad tonight. Yesterday, a new fishing boat followed him home! ACK! Could it be genetic!? ...I will say that at least they didn't ALL follow me home! See!! I ...I mean they... showed SOME restraint!
My Mom says she can't raise chicks this year -- I'll raise them for you, Mom!
