    Current # of Hens Laying: Not enough, It's winter they are freeloaders....
    Eggs laid last week: 302
    Chicks growing out : Zero!


    ***Also, Breeding Blue and Black Copper Marans, with some splash hopefully. Olive Eggers from SBEL hens, and Shizzles (Frizzled Silkie Showgirls.) Holler if you want some Spring 2017 :D


    How it happened---
    I love my chickens! I am completely addicted. My husband built me the cutest coop for Mother's day 2011, and we started with 4, then 6, then 7, then 8, then 9, then two got eaten by my dog.....then back up to 8, then had to give a mean EE away, then 2 more in the winter, 2 more, 4 more....oh my I have lost track in the twenties somewhere... So....the DH built on to our existing coop and run this Spring 2012. Goodness... I could not go back to having zero chickens, no way. I spend so much time watching them and just having fun being their mom. I may never have a clean house again :)

    Me, my girls, my morning latte! This is the 'original' LA CASA......

    Ok then I got chicken math. IT was pretty bad......:) It is more like Chicken geometry.

    The second bigger version on the left with the mini coop on the far right end:

    I love your photos. What a beautiful colorful egg basket you must collect each day :)
  2. RJSorensen
    I always like to look at your birds and setup… the fancy 'do' birds always amuse me and the showgirl stuff and all, very nice! You do a excellent job with your birds, and your contribution to bird keeping in general is just top notch. Thanks for your efforts in this regard. (Insert smilie face here)
  3. La Casa de Pollo
    Thanks! Chickenstock will be May 2 in Idaho Falls. A chicken Meet/swap/show where several BYC member get together. Will get you the info as its gets closer!
  4. iPickYupik
    Beautiful chickens and what an awesome set up you have! :) I need to figure out what Chickenstock is. Sounds like fun!
  5. La Casa de Pollo
    Show girls, not show guys right? Woohoo! Hope they hatch!
  6. Cynthia12
    What a cute idea! Love all of your pictures. Now, can't wait to see what you end up doing with your coop! And, I am looking forward to seeing your new showgirl babies..as in..show-girls.

    Ah. I <3 Barred Rocks! I was guessing Dominique because fo the comb
  9. La Casa de Pollo
    Thanks for the compliments! Sometimes, I do not know why, the pics say "not available" and I have to click on them to see them. Other times, they are just there.....weird!
  10. La Casa de Pollo
    That is Violet, my BR as a chick. She is the sweetest thing. She thinks she is a person I think!
  11. SnowPeeOstrichU
    I like the picture of the (is that a dominique?) chicken on his head!
  12. SnowPeeOstrichU
    Aaaawwwww cute! If only I had more space..... I'm jealous of pretty much everyone here! I can have four or five... Gotta buy farmland if I want more, and I do, but farmland costs $$
  13. Daloorashens
