A Home for the girls

Since my last post about our chickens, so much has happened!   First we had a chicken coop given to us, and the excitement began!

 Then, a trap was loned to us.  Our chickens easily came and ate all the good food and Josh or Patrick pulled the trap.

Poor Josh, he's gotten a few scratches along the way.

   We caught (or should I say rescued? :o)  Pink, Big Mama, Jingle and our newest one:  Dipper

Pink even laid an egg!  But, then Big Mama stepped on it.  I think we have lots to learn!

By today I was getting tired of all of this chicken talk!  Cages, coops, traps, nets, rope, feed, leftovers, escaping, scratches, and thousands of looks out the window to check on "the girls."  I'm sort of over this chicken business!
 Then, I saw this:

Yup!  They just had to check on them one more time! :o)


  1. What a cute bottom photo. I see this chicken business is family business, lol. I even see chickens/roosters on your wall in the kitchen.

  2. I've always wanted to have fresh eggs.
