First egg!

It came in transit, on the way home. Which is good because the chickens came before the coop did. :)

The wildcard

Chickens arrive tomorrow and all eyes are on the dog. He's the great mystery in this adventure. No one is quite sure what he'll do when he finds the feathered poultry in his yard.

He chases out every bunny, squirrel, and cat. But what will he do when he can't chase them out?

Let's hope this isn't the last post on this blog and the chickens last through Monday.

And so it begins

We've decided to house our own chickens this summer.

Sure, there are lots of reasons we shouldn't do it. But those reasons are at the intersection of Life and Boring streets. We're doing it for the adventure of it. Because we can. I love the idea of learning along with my kids and like the veggie garden, I love the idea of growing and raising our own food.
