Chicago Chicks

Andrew and I just got back from a wonderful week in Chicago. A big thank you to Kevin for feeding, watering and playing with the chicks while we were gone. Although we were away from my chicks, we weren't totally away from chickens. Yes, even in Chicago. On Friday, we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo, which is a wonderful little FREE zoo. John Deere has sponsored a little farm zoo, just outside the main zoo. We saw huge rabbits, sheep, goats, cows and Chickens!

I met this chicken at the "Meet the Chicken" event. She's five years old and very sweet. We were also taught how to pet a chicken. Luckily, we've been doing it right.

Sweet, sweet little chicks. We also saw some just hatched chicks--not as cute, but interesting to see.
