The Chicken Condo


I am going to have some happy chickens. I just wanted a simple chicken tractor for a couple of hens but Hubby decided we needed a fancy house and eggs for your kids that want them. We spent the weekend working on it and now it's ready for occupants.
How sweet is Elliot bringing Poppy a bottle of cold water!! And of course, Tony must be right where the action is.
I was kind of wishy washy about getting chickens. As a teenager, I spent some quality time working at my Uncle's fryer farm. There were thousands of fryers in 2 barns. Then as a young wife, we had farm animals and raised chickens from Uncle's farm for meat--we never had any layers and I'm not too sure why. Now that we are trying desperately to simplify our lives, he decides we need a few hens. I'm thinking that is not simplifying...maybe it is.
So hens will be coming to the farm as soon as I can find some. I don't really want chicks but I may have to get them. I just hope he doesn't want to get a goat!!! No offense to the goats but...

YOur grandkids will enjoy the chickens. We had some when our kids were little - it was all the chickens I ever hoped to raise. :-)

I REPEAT.... I HATE GOATS. HATE THEM, HATE THEM, HATE THEM. YOU PROBABLY DON'T REMEMBER WHEN YOU SAVED MY LIFE FROM THE LITTLE GIRL KILLING BILLY, WHEN YOU RAN SCREAMING FOR MAMMA WHEN THE BILLY PINNED ME AGAINST THAT ALDER TREE. I REPEAT... I HATE GOATS!!! BUT AH LOVES CHICKENS :)

Judy - just think, you don't have to go shopping to buy eggs. Simple. Besides, fresh eggs are sooooo much better.
