Chickens on the farm!! Finally!! :)
Dylan's dad was in town a few weeks ago and built a chicken coop while he was here. Pretty awesome, actually. The coop is moveable and can hold up to 50 laying hens. We started with 25 "assorted red", hoping that most of them are Rhode Island Reds. Currently, they are in the farm room in a brooder and doing great!! They are all healthy, happy little chicks and will be ready for the coop before we know it. The kids have really enjoyed caring for them. The feed them bugs and grass and vegetable scraps....and scare the chicks to death in the process. They are slowly getting used to each other.
We are VERY EXCITED to have eggs at some point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait.
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
