25 chicks

Last Easter, I found myself at the local farm supply store gazing over a horse trough filled with baby chicks. My parents had come to visit and wanted to take their three granddaughters to pick out a fuzzy yellow chick to take home as a pet. The store employee quickly informed me that the minimum purchase was 25. After deliberating on how my wife might respond if I brought home 25 chickens, I decided to go for it.
We enjoy having chickens as pets. There is just something about watching chickens roam the yard that makes living in the country that much better.
