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!
