    I thought I might deliver some eggs to my neighbors with the following letter and a picture of my chickens:

    Dear Neighbor,
    We, the chickens of 7672 ½ Tumblegg Dr., would like to introduce ourselves to you, one of our favorite neighbors. We live directly through the fence from you. You might have heard us making some noise every once in awhile, and hopefully it has not alarmed you in any way. We do get excited when we are about to or have laid one of these beautiful eggs. We like to announce it, so we apologize if we all of a sudden we let out some noises that you are not used to. We are just a bunch of ladies so you won’t hear any “cock a doodle doo’s”, unless of course we are trying to imitate those things they call roosters.
    We are attempting to be good neighbors. We don’t like to smell, we love to eat bugs and spiders, and we promise to go to bed just as the sun is about to go down. We don’t like to stay up late and we don’t play loud music, or do anything crazy, as we tend to mind our own business.
    You are welcome to come visit once in awhile. We love swiss chard and other green, leafy vegetable scraps. We even like cheese!
    Thanks for welcoming us to the neighborhood. Enjoy these eggs.
    Sincerely,
    Licorice, Mrs. T., B.B., Caramel, Toffie, Snickers, Butterscotch, Ruby, & Sam

    How could you resist not wanting a bunch of ladies like these for neighbors?

    Quote:That's right! You couldn't ask for better ones! Thanks for responding.
    I actually added five more to my flock tonight, stopped on the way home from work at the feed store and bought 2 RIR, 2 Dominques, and 1 Wellsummer. They are in the garage but will eventually join the flock as they get older.
