so the time has finally come to have our very own urban chickens! we pick them up this evening from our dear friends. we hope we will be good chicken parents, that our dog won't eat them, that they will be happy layers, and that it won't be too scary when the time comes to give them new life in the roasting and grilling worlds. :)
here is our empty coop/run. it is movable so they can eat bugs, weeds and especially ticks all over the yard. we may clip their wings so they can range all about the backyard, otherwise they would easily fly over the fence and be goners. we will retrieve the eggs from the box on the right of the coop, where the laying will hopefully happen.
