Meet the girls

Today was a big day! We started the day with a little last-minute painting.

And tonight we drove out to the farm where we were buying the hens. There were lots of them- 

But we just needed 6. We chased them and mostly distracted them so Shane the farmer could actually catch them. Avery was really into the chase aspect!

Somehow I miscalculated the lid size for our fancy laundry basket carrier and we had a few escapees...Julian helped with keeping the lid in place, but those chickens were wily! 

But we got them bundled up and soon deposited them in our yard- 

Welcome home girls!
