Coming soon to the Golden Egg...

It's chick season! Yesterday, we ordered a dozen new chicks from Murray McMurray Hatchery. On March 2nd, we are journeying up to Webster City, IA to pick up our order! We are super excited for the new addition to our flock. Our little peepers were very specifically selected. We don't want to give TOO much away, but we'll give you a sneak peek.
We each want to have a pen of three for the fair, so we got four great egg layers (one extra in case of casualties). For the show bird category, we both chose two beautiful breeds that also are great egg layers. Watch for details regarding our second annual Golden Eggstravaganza!
