It's that time of year again! CHICKENS!!!!!
We picked up these three beauties from Laura, one of the Harvest Kitchen Sisters on Monday and they seem to be adjusting well. We even got an egg on the first day!
Gage spent about 40 minutes sitting on a chair in front of the chicken coop yesterday, telling the chickens how their relationship with our family is going to work. When I asked him what he told them, he said that he told them their responsibility is to provide us with eggs....or else we'll eat them. Hmmmm. (Don't worry - we won't eat the chickens, I've got a deposit on these ladies!).
I'm looking forward to some animal husbandry again. The black/white one is named "little Jerry" (Seinfeld anyone?), the red/brown one is "Humpty Dumpty" and the black one is "Smankey".
