Chickens, Maybe

J has been talking about getting some chickens for quite some time now.  He raised them growing up and loves free range eggs over store bought. 
 This pitiful chicken house is on our other farm,
 but contains this nesting box which we might be able to use.   That is if we can get to it without the building falling on us.
 Another building has some old windows
and this gable end.  Maybe we can come up with a plan to reuse some of these parts this spring.

Too funny, I was just saying to Husband today that we really need to get chickens! Six eggs just went into dinner, and five into dessert! It would seem we enjoy eggs!

Let me know if you want some fertilized eggs...we have them! I'm so excited you're thinking of adding to your farm! We love our chickens and their eggs!

We love having chickens, and sell our extras regularly. When I see those white eggs from the grocery store, they look so "funny"! I hope you enjoy them!

I think you would really enjoy chickens. Too bad you can't revive that old coop.

oh my, I've never seen a building on the side of a steep hill like that before.

Take it apart and put it on flat ground!!!

It took us 10 years to dive into the lowly chicken world, and we love it!I wish we would have had poultry years ago. I say go for it! Just buy a few more chickens than you really want if you free range them because you may have a few losses to predators.

Hmm I am glad other people like chickens cause I am not that fond of them. But we have at least 3 neighbors who do so we get the eggs without the chickens, perfect
