Urban Basics

Getting back to basics in an urban setting

My chicks hatch today!

Leave a comment

The breeder I ordered from just sent me an email saying that my 20 chicks had started to hatch and that I can come pick them up this afternoon. I am so excited!! I ordered 4 wheaten Ameraucana, 4 Lavender Ameraucana, 4 barred and blue rocks, 4 Marans, 2 German New Hampshire, and 2 Blue laced red Wyandottes.
These little guys will be added to my six hens. I have one Light Brahma, one Red Star, and one Easter Egger that lays green eggs. I also have three blue egg layers that are Ameraucana X leghorn cross.
My new chicks will be just hours old when I bring them home. I hope with much handling, they wont be as stand offish as my other hens. Can’t wait to meet them!

My 3 children and I live on 14 acres in Savannah Ga. I have worked hard at turning the property into a thriving, self sufficient homestead. It has been a learning experience and a lot of hard work but its so worth it. I don't understand how our country became so consumer driven. We have lost so much of our production way of life. It is my goal to get back to basics any way that I can. My three children used be so hooked on TV, video games, computers, iphones and ipads. And while they still like those things, they now spend just as much time outside as they do inside. I hope by learning to raise chickens and rabbits, growing gardens, raising goats and riding horses and spending more time outdoors in general, my children will learn to love and appreciate a simpler way of life. I knew nothing about homesteading when I started this journey but I have learned so much and love every minute of it.
