    Well the day has come to pack the coop up and get out of the city where my roo can crow and not be criticized! We have found a house on an acre of land in Eden Utah!!!!! My chickens hate the half made coop (so do i! Don't get me wrong i love my coop but we need a REAL one!!!)!!! We will be moving in a couple weeks to 30 days!!! this house has a bad flooding problem outside when it rains but it has more ups than downs!!!! SOOOOOO my flock of ten will be living in the garage in a dog run ( [​IMG] [​IMG]) with a roost till this cruddy weather dies down and beautiful spring explodes on our acre! I am so scared to move to a new school with new people but i guess it will be OK!! I told our flock that we were moving and my rooster snuggled up against my leg and my hens began to dance!! HAHAHAHAHAH!!! I LOVE CHICKENS!!! [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure that this is one place where people who talk to their chickens are considered "normal", whatever the heck that is. Hope you enjoy country living as much as I do!

    Not only do I talk to my chickens, my Jersey Giant talks back! She's very chatty and we have long conversations when I'm out gardening. If I disappear from her sight, she'll call to me. I'll call out to her and she'll come running to find me. It's really sweet.

    That was my first thought. I always thank the for the eggs, and threaten production meetings. Good luck with your move.
