The Chicken Came First

Then the coop!

Stan, Caleb & Andrew worked on this in July

And early August

The chickens moved in but still like to roam around some.

We have nine. The white Ideals from Ace (look like leghorns to me) are the oldest, hatched before Easter...

and the 2 hens are now laying!

Not the dog. She is begging.
But she will lie down on command. ;-)

Polish Chicken

A sure-fire winner of crazy hair day.

Yes, that really is a chicken.

Yes, there are eyes in there somewhere; I have seen them.

No, I'm not sure if it's a hen or a rooster but the name is Tina Turner so you know what we are hoping. :-)
