We let the girls out for a few hours today, and while they first had to be booted out of the coop, they were in hog heaven after they realized the bounty of weeds and bugs to be nommed.
I also managed to get the fraidy cat, Garuda, out. She was coop-bound, taking the rare opportunity to gorge herself on the unguarded feed while the larger ladies were roaming around.
did you read "animal, vegetable, miracle" yet? (by b. kingsolver) i believe she talks about chickens and laying quite a bit there, when her daughter raises them... from what i recollect. anyway, did i mention how Sooooooooooooooo jealous i am of your precious little layers?? can't wait to meet them chickadee!!ReplyDelete

Hello! I have 4 chickens and we live very close to you. I'm in the bright orange house on Folsom. Your coop is quite fancy and it must be a pleasure to gaze upon it every morning.ReplyDelete
Thank you! We do really enjoy it. It's certainly been a labor of love. What breeds do you have? I'd love to see some pictures!ReplyDelete
