A Chicken Update

Our three hens are doing great!

They laid 17 eggs this past week!
They've been averaging 15.

(They love watching us through the window...
or staring at their reflections...
either way.)

We've found the chickens to be quite easy.
We let them out of the coop in the morning,
make sure they have food and water,
and then lock the coop once they're all in for the night.
Each week we clean out the coop, which simply consists of sweeping their poo into a bag.

(I know she looks mean, but she's not. Promise.)

Jack, Alice, and the chickens all get along great.
There are even a pair of doves that are usually hanging out in our yard, too.
It's like a little utopia.

In short,
we recommend having backyard chickens.
We should've gotten them sooner.
