Chickens were the last thing on my mind 2 weeks ago, but here i am totally in love with my girls! Two weeks ago I received a phone call from a lady saying that she had 15 rhode island reds that she didn't want and asked if I would take them. I thought to myself no way, the last time we had chickens I was 5 and I hated being chased and pecked. (We had an especially mean roaster that would attack the face if you even looked at him!) But before I could really think about it I had said yes and to give me a week to get a coup ready. So here I am with 15 beautiful chickens and large brown eggs (they have been laying about 3 months) and I absolutely love it! I have already caught myself dreaming of building a larger coup and getting more! Who knew that chickens could be so much fun!
