Earlier in the month-- I wrapped up my posts on NO SPEND FEBRUARY...
if your interested in how that went for us...you can click on the Pink Piggy Bank at the top right of my side bar.
It links to all those posts.
Part of that wrap-up and hidden deep in that post I mentioned new chicks!
Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life posted 'Official Portraits' of her new baby chicks... and while chatting through email she mentioned she had missed my post that I had gotten new chicks.
They are gift card chicks...meaning I paid nothing for them.
Here is a run down of what we got that day with our gift card!
At Tractor Supply we bought:
- baby chicks to increase the egg supply
- seed for more veggies
- 2 Apple trees
- 2 Concord Grape vines
- 20# chick starter and drink mix
- heat lamp bulb
- a rain gauge and
- 2 metal wheels for the smoker. (had to spend some money on the wheels and rain gauge- they exceeded the card amount, forgot about that) $29. Everything else there was free!
Here are the baby chicks...about 4 weeks old now.
One -half dozen chicks.
No. this is not the glamour shot of my chickens.
Here is a close up and 'How do you do?' shot ...or a "Here's looking at you chick"
Not a glamour shot.
SMILE FOR THE CAMERA!
You really didn't think I was going to chase 6 baby chicks around and try for glamour shots
I mean chasing one was hard enough.
I'm taking the weekend off to celebrate
I hope you all Enjoy the time with your families and are able to take time this weekend to reflect on the Gift of Grace that Christ so freely gave.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. ~ Philippians 4:23
For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world; but that through Him the world might be saved. ~ John 3:17
