Say Hello to our Girls
We finally finished the coop and went out and found some chickens to take up residence!
They are most definitely not chicks - that was the original plan. But chicks are born in the springtime and well...it's the middle of summer. So we hit up Craigslist and managed to find a crazy chicken owner not too far from us whose husband was making her give up some of her animals. As she put it, "we don't really even eat the eggs, I just love the birds." And I'll admit, I thought that was totally nutty. Who loves chickens? They're weird, right?
So we took advantage of her situation and picked up two admittedly beautiful birds. They were transported home in nothing other than a diaper box. How apropos.
B Daddy was in charge of releasing them
...I actually haven't touched them yet.
Big Brown is LOVING the new additions.
Aren't they beautiful?!
We're working on names...I'll keep you posted. Kitchen progress also coming soon!
