Adventures in chickens.

I've wanted chickens ever since I fell in love with a rooster named Hector.  This year, we decided to make this a reality.  My husband was resistant, but I was PERsistant.  Haha. I started saying things like "When I get my chickens", and finally he just gave up.  Really, he will thank me for badgering him soon.  Anyway, I got up one morning and headed to Tractor Supply Company for 6 baby chicks.  It was love at first sight!!  Even my infant daughter loved them.

After a few months (and a lot of stress) our chickens were finally getting their coop.

At last, our ladies were home!!

And today, one of our new chickens, a Silkie named Penny, laid us a perfect egg in one of the nesting boxes.  Thanks, Penny,  (On the left.)
