I’ve mentioned multiple times by now, I am sure, that I wanted and/or would be getting chickens. Well, I did! Back in mid may, I paid for them and, because I was totally unprepared for them, sent them off to live with my mom and her chickens..that is, until this Sunday! 🙂
I was pretty fortunate that the move over did not disturb their laying whatsoever and in just a few days, I’ve collected a dozen eggs! I am slightly beyond what would be considered the ”normal amount of excited” I should be to no longer need to buy eggs for some time. It has become my routine to visit my Clucks several times a day and thank the ladies when I find an egg. I’m weird. I know.
I also like to think that I’ve been fortunate with having some fairly well behaved chickens. From day one I’ve been letting them out to free roam the yard while I work in the garden , and with the exception of one adventurous Ms Whitey Clover, they tend to stay very near. Ms Whitey on the other hand does like to explore. She is like a cartoon chicken. Oh so curious. And unafraid to snoop through the tall grass or peck at the dogs coats.
