We had a great time at the Sounders game on Friday - Started at the Owl and Thistle, comped some free beers on the way into the stadium, sat in the dopest section, right behind the opposing teams goal, where 2 goals were scored, Danny Watts was in our spot when we came back from halftime, walked up capitol hill after the game, stopped by Seattle U, ventured to Linda's, and returned home.

Our three baby chicks arrived on Saturday!!!!!
I went to a class on Thursday to learn how to raise baby chicks (not too hard) and to pick up a couple of tricks o the trade. I think I'll do my majority of learning over the next 6-8 weeks. They spent the first day in the spare bedroom in a rubbermaid with a heat lamp - they have to be kept at 95 degrees for the first week - currently they are 4 days old. In the wild... the chicks stay under the mother hen and it's pretty toasty in there i guess.
Now the chicks are in the basement, it's cold so i'll have to keep an eye on them and make sure they are doing okay.
We got three different breeds, all are good layers for the climate of seattle: Wyandotte, Rhode Island Red, and 'Easter Egger' which gets it's name from the blue/green eggs it will lay, but from what i can tell, is sort of a muddled breed in itself.
Video: The chicks on their first day - the black one is the Easter Egger, and Hannah's chicken, she's named it Beyonce.... the others have yet to be named, and according to the woman who taught the chicken class "if you want to be an urban farmer, don't name your chickens... if you want to be an urban pet owner, name away..."
