it’s starting to feel like a FARM around these parts! on wednesday i brought home six chicks: 3 araucanas, 1 rhode island red, and 2 red cross. when they grow up, they will live in this (great job guessing, you guys!). we are pretty smitten with them already, and they all look so different and have their own personalities, even though they are only a few days old. we’re naming them after the ladies of Mad Men. so far we’ve got Joan, Peggy, Betty/Betsy, Jane and Lois. can you guess who’s who?
