I am blaming Heidi
I am blaming Heidi because I have no one else to blame. And a course I am not blaming myself. She has decided to raise chickens. I was excited for her. She has wanted to raise chickens for a while. So off to the feed store she went yesterday. She came home with the supplies and 12 chicks. They were really cute.
She said I should get a few Americana's that they laid the Easter Eggs. No thank you! I had my hands full with the ones I have. Plus my hen house is very small. Heidi asked if I wanted to go with her to pick her's up today. I thought sure why not. That was the first mistake. Even if your positive you won't buy any thing. DON'T GO AROUND CUTE ANIMALS ! They have a ability to put a spell on you.I was fine till this cute little blond one came up to me. She just step up onto my hand. I am not kidding you. My heart did a little flip flop.
This is the little heart breaker.
But I was safe ,I have 3 cats so I couldn't take her home. I got out of that one.
Heidi being the ever loving friend offered to raise her till we could put her with my hens safely. There was my second mistake. Never have a friend that is willing to help you out of a jam you want to be in. She said that if I didn't take it she would. My Bird! She wanted my bird! Third mistake possessiveness! Ok, get the bird and get out before you end up buying more. Heidi purchased her birds and we headed back to her house. I did buy one for my daughter. ( shown below)
She fell in love with hers too. So you can now see how this is Heidi fault right? Ya, I told you I wasn't taking the blame.
