I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to feel sad when I thin out the seedlings, but I do...good luck to me when it's time for the chickens to become dinner!

Speaking of which, six chicks have been ordered! They hatch on March 28th and they're a 'heavy cross' that the woman at the heritage hatchery says will be good for growing fast but also good for free ranging (still not sure about whether we'll have the chickens free ranging or in one of the fenced in areas). We also reserved 4 laying hens (Isa Browns - a cross between Rhode Island Reds and Rhode Island Whites) that are a year old to pick up mid April so that we don't have to wait 5-6 months to have fresh eggs.
