    Popcorn (the leghorn) is the nicest one. Charlotte "catches" her about a hundred times a day, I dont know quite why she puts up with it but she does. The chickens easily outrun the kids (and me) so she definitely allows herself to be caught. These were our first pictures. Weve had the hens almost a month, but theyve been our secret....

    Well, not too sure whether the HOA allows them or not. Phoenix ordinances say we are supposed to ask permission of neighbors within 50 feet... not sure exactly what that means... I think its stupid. I would rather live next to a couple hens than a barking dog, or a dog that poops and never gets cleaned up after, or a cat that fights at night, or... a bengal tiger. Also, I sortof got made fun of before when I got chicks, but decided to not keep them (didnt work with our yard) so I really didnt tell anyone. The kids are telling anyone who asks if they have a pet that they have a bird. Its true.
