My old elementary school is hatching creatures this spring! The kindergarteners are hatching chicks (both meat birds and layers), and the first graders are hatching ducklings. So of course, who could pass up free baby creatures...
32 meat birds (Cornish X) are happily hanging out in my basement now. They're adorable... but they're food. So I'm calling them "The Nuggets" instead of "the babies" like I usually refer to new chicks.
Good job, lil Nugget! Grow me some delicious wings!
Um... I mean... NOTHING SORRY MOVE ALONG NOW!
Here are the old babies - they're kind of ginormous now:
And Poofball Head has a delightful beard to go with his poof:

We found more food in the garden too! Lemon rosemary smells AMAZING! You should really invest in a scratch-n-sniff screen so you could experience this:
And we found chives too:
