Chickens….We have chickens!!!!

I have wanted chickens for a long, long time, but our highly trained bird dogs have kept us from getting them.  I personally think that there is nothing better than fresh eggs.  A friend of mine from Boone asked me to go in on an order of chicks with her. She knows how badly I have wanted to have chickens.  I told her I would talk with Brian and let her know.  I’m not sure if Brian was distracted, tired of me asking or just having a weak moment, but he said, “sure, if you can find a way to make it happen.”  That was all I needed.  We are now the proud owners of 22 chicks.  We have 11 Australorp, 5 Americanas, 6 Easter Eggers and 2 Sapphire Gems (there were an impulse buy.  I mean who doesn’t want a purple chicken!) Brian did a great job of converting a shed type building at our house and built an amazing one of a kind coop.  We are enjoying watching our girls.  They are hilarious.  So, look for blue, green, pink and brown eggs coming your way in July!
