Hi friends, happy Thursday! We’ve had the perfect mix of work and relaxation around here this week.
Let’s talk about all things baby today- chicks, goats, and baby bumps!
Evicting the Chicks
Ben has been working on the chicken coop for a while now. Our baby chicks are no longer babies – they’re huge! It was fun having the chickens in the house for a while, but we’ve been itching to transfer them outside ASAP. Plus, even though our brooder box is huge, they need some more space.
We’ve had some pretty heavy rain in Chicago earlier this week which made it impossible for Ben to work on the coop. The weather thankfully improved, which allowed him to finish the structural components of the coop. We officially moved the chickens outside last night and I’m SO excited! Baby chicks have officially been evicted from the house 😉
The chicken coop is HUGE. Ben said that we could comfortably fit 20 chickens, so looks like we might need to double our flock pretty soon (sorry hubby).
Fire Pit Makeover
While Ben worked on the chicken coop this week, I decided that our fire pit desperately needed a makeover. We still have some landscaping to do around the fire pit, but I’m loving the new furniture (which is on sale!) and progress so far.
Baby Goats & Baby Bumps
I know I’ve said it a million times, but goats are seriously the coolest animals ever. Ben and I were talking a few nights ago and I kept telling him how pleasantly surprised I am about having goats. They have the sweetest temperament and they make my heart melt.
Now that my due date is quickly approaching, I’ve started to wonder how they’ll react to the new baby. My belly is getting huge and Penny was going crazy last night! She was trying to climb all over me. I’m not sure if she was just excited or if she was reacting to my expanding belly? Who knows.
I’m pretty sure both Penny and Lucy will love the new baby, as long as they can nibble on his onesie while someone feeds them.
