The Coup

We have 3 happy chickens!

We've been thinking about getting chickens for awhile, and when we heard the Carrolls were getting rid of theirs we jumped at the opportunity.

Eli loves "gathering" them. He lets them out in the yard and then puts them away again. He always want to take care of them, unfortunately chickens don't need a whole lot of taking care of. These are definitely well cared for chickens, they are fed, watered and herded around the yard several times a day!

Thank you Carrolls for this great experience you've given our family!

That is so fun. I'll have to call you and pick your brain about the whole thing. I was thinking it would be fun to get some now that we have so much space.

I wondered if Krista could have a house on the market with chickens in the backyard. :)

That's awesome! How convenient to go and get eggs from the backyard. You'll have to tell me more about it when I see you next.

Very Cute...I wanted to get some chickens, but apparently there is a city ordinance against it :( Enjoy the fresh eggs!

I've been waiting for this post ever since my birthday! What a great addition to the home.

How funny! So are they laying eggs for you?
