Foto Friday








It's Foto Friday again at Rebecca's and the theme this week was beauty in the ugly. I have to give you a bit of a background here for this one.

Emily's birthday is next Monday and she has been begging for some sort of pet. Well, technically she has asked for a dwarf bunny. But chickens were also on her list. One of the teachers in my school hatched a bunch of chicks in her classroom a week ago.

To make a long story short, I was allowed to keep 5 of the chicks. When Emily came home from school today I told her I had a surprise for her birthday.

This was what she saw when she opened the lid.

It was the best reaction ever! She took one look and burst into tears and threw herself in my arms. She is one happy girl.

I think I definitely made a good choice.

Now all we have to do is build a coop and pen. Maybe it wasn't such a smart choice for Dan and the boys! ;-)

This is my entry for this week. I do think chickens are kind of ugly, but these little one's feathers are beautiful too.
