BBC Chicks

While I do consider myself to be a BBC chick, this post isn’t about my being a British television fan girl. I got five chicks on Friday from our local farm store.

Our first batch of chicks were all named German names. The second batch, foods. The newest girls after characters in our favorite BBC shows: Downton Abbey, Dr Who and Call the Midwife. They aren’t always our favorite characters but we picked the ones that had the best chicken names.

I picked up my five babies and brought them home in a box that looked remarkably like the box I would use to bring home fried chicken from the deli in… LOL

The big difference is that the chicken in my box was way cuter!
