Meet the Newest Talberts

We are the proud parents of thirteen new baby chicks! They just came yesterday and for future dinner, they sure are cute! Libby seems particularly soft-hearted toward them. Hopefully their gangly, not-chicks-anymore stage will cure her of her chicken love, because I notice that Ben has made a note on our calendar on June 13th that reads, "Off With Their Heads!!"

I do not enjoy chicken slaughtering (particularly mid-summer) (also particularly late-pregnancy), but it will be nice to have thirteen chickens in the freezer just in time for the babe to be born. I have a little goal of not having to buy meat from the grocery, so it's been slim-pickin's lately.
