Last year, after visiting with a friend who owns a chicken, I said to Danny, "I want chickens!" He kind of looked at me like I was nuts.
Two weeks ago, Danny and his Grandfather (Pop) built a chicken coop, and put up a fenced in chicken yard.
Last Friday we got six hens:
Dora, Eve (the red and white one), Jessie (the black one behind Eve), Peppa, Vanessa, and Sarah Speckles.
Before you ask, yes, I am scared of birds, but birds that fly around my head. Although their feet kind of creep me out, I am not scared of Chickens.
Caura LOVES the chickens. She likes to catch them and hold them, and she likes to check for the 4-5 eggs they are laying each day. I think it will be a great experience for my Girls to grow up taking care of chickens.
