Cheap Way to Raise Chickens: More FREE Chicks!

Michael, the boys and I went by Mel's house today for just a sec this afternoon and without even getting out of the car we left with two new chicks. Her family is so kind. Thanks Harold {Mel's Dad}. The boys LOVE them. They are 3 weeks old.
Bailey and Cluckey.
Dalton and Crowbar.
Their personalities are so different. Cluckey is cool, calm, collected. Crowbar is a wild one. However we think Cluckey is a Sussex and Crowbar is a Game chicken. Mel said Crowbar may be a Rooster too.  I hope not. Apparently Game Roosters can be mean. We are hoping Crowbar is a Female.

I shared this post with Farm Chicks Farm Photo Friday, Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop, and Shopping Superstars.

Thanks Teresa. Cluckey has passed on, but Crowbar is hanging in there.
