My Sweet Lil' Peeps

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter weekend!
Mine was  J
Not just because of the candy, cupcakes, candy, cookies, hard boiled eggs...and well candy.
But because of these little guys!
Yep my husband thought we needed a little farm.
He's been talking about get chicks for forever now.
I wasn't sure at first and thought it was something that would never happen. Just one of those 'ideas' that men come up know the kind right?
Well. Short story short.
He wasn't kidding
Now we have eight chicks and two ducks!
I'm sooo so giddy over the ducklings. They are the most adorable things in the universe!
We took them on there first 'swim' and it was the funniest thing to watch! They didn't know what to do, so they would stand on their tip tip toes and try to walk around. Then when they figured out they could float, their little feet were going a hundred miles an hour fluttery everywhere.!
They can't quite hold there heads up yet, so when they sleep, their bills go straight into the pine shavings. This lil' one figured out how to solve that problem  J
Last night I walk into the room to find this. How freak'n cute is that!

I'm still not so sure about this whole crazy idea about raising 8 chickens and 2 ducks, but I'll hang in there and probably keep you posted.  J
Until then, enjoy this cute video of my duckies first swim! (don't mind the commentary on my part) 



  1. I lovelovelove them! We've been raising chickens for almost 2 years now. We got a duck last year but it didn't make it :-(

  2. that was SOOOOOO cute!!! i think i may need some of these cute little guys! xox

  3. Ahhh your little ones are sooo cute!We are trying our hand at first time chick raising too! They grow so fast! If you want to check out my chick stories they are at

  4. Enjoy the cuteness now because they sure won't stay that way!

  5. Sooooooo cute! My husband has been talking about chickens forever too. Thank you for pioneering the way for me :) I'll be watching how this all works out for you all.

  6.! They are soooooooo cute!!!!

  7. Oh, they ARE adorable! I'm not going to let my kids see these, or they'll be asking for ducklings and chicks, too. As cute as they are, I don't know how I'd resist! :)

  8. So cute! Exciting to be starting a farm! Have you already built them a house outside? Can't wait to see that project, how fun. Enjoy the the little chirp chirps they are darling.

  9. They are so stinking cute! I wrote about this in my post today! Seeing this doesn't help me say no to my boys when they ask for some. ;)
    BTW I am a new follower and I LOVE your blog!

  10. Baby ducks are the best! Take them out in the yard and walk in front of them and they will follow you just like you are their Mom:) I raised some but neighbor dogs got 3 of my 4 and it was heartbreaking and the chicks turned into cannibals against each so that didn't end too well either:(

  11. Oh, that is waaaay too cute! My guy has also been chatting up ducks... (what is it with guys and ducks?) and I would love to get chickens... but they are just now raising a bylaw that keeps us from having any. Next easter maybe. I would cave in an instant :) Good to know about not keeping them together... I will be checking back to see how they do!

  12. Too cute. My kids loved it. Of course they are asking me to go get them some at Wal-Mart right now but fortunately they don't carry them. See what you started.:)


happy DIYing! Alicia
