We FINALLY got chicks!!!! Let me tell you how incredibly excited I am about these little babies. We (well me) have wanted chickens for years. Seeing them in the feed stores this time of year, every year, and not being able to get them has been heartbreaking. Okay okay; I “MAYBE” going a bit far, its wasn’t really heartbreaking but I did really want them. After years of hinting at wanting them, my amazing husband. Gave us the go ahead!
We researched everything. From what types of chicks, to the types (and how many) eggs, to the types of food that they would need, to what we would need at home for them to be happy healthy chicks. We KNEW everything about chicks and about raising chicks. Yep we got this.
Till it came time to order, then everything went sideways
Life always takes us in unexpected directions. It can certainly be an adventure, and is something that you have to be flexible with. There is a saying, “You plan…. God Laughs”. Whether you believe in a higher being or not, that is a saying that rings true to us. This is yet another example of how we “planned” and the universe kicked us in the butt saying “nope, not gonna wait. Life happens now.” And we went from your pretty typical small town people to “almost” farm life overnight. With the addition of two little boy alpacas. Now I know the question on your mind…. Do alpacas make great pets?
