Keeping Chickens

Not so long ago, and not so far away, we decided to raise chickens to provide us with tasty eggs. So we went for a drive and came home with a box of peeps.

We had 31 adorable balls of fluff.  They learned to peck and scratch and do all sorts of chicken things.

In a blink of our eye, they were full grown and feathered.  The girls were moved out of the garage and into to their coop and run in the yard.  They were fearful at first but their curiosity got the best of them and soon they were exploring their new digs.

They had many things to do throughout the day that kept them busy from dawn until dusk.


Catching some rays


Chanting "I'm higher than you . . . "


Dust bathing

Oh yes, did I mention - EATING!

They did of course start laying eggs and it has been just over a year since we've bought eggs from the store.  :)
