Have you ever made an impulse buy? Recently, at a local feed store we couldn't pass up an opportunity to add to the family farm. So, on impulse, we bought a bunch of those cute little meat chickens. The kids embraced the idea and we gleaned what we could from the friendly sales lady and we took our 18 chicks home from the store to fatten them up. How hard could a three month commitment be? After a couple of weeks in the house keeping them nurtured and warm, the smell alone made us want to send these new "house guests" on their way.
