For the past year or so, we’ve been getting eggs from my parents, who have chickens. But now… let the fun begin! Danny found two eggs today.

They’re rather small, as far as eggs go, but the chickens will give us larger and larger eggs. I am dreaming of the days when I have enough eggs to make Quiche, angel food cake, sponge cake, massive family size omelets…

The chickens are no longer in their tractors. Instead, they all live in one of our back goat pens. The poor Freedom Ranger rooster gets picked on by everyone, including the Freedom Ranger hen. But now I only have to feed and water them, not move them. And they’re worth the time since they give us eggs!

Such good little chickens we have!

    Sounds like you are preparing for winter. You can’t move chicken tractors very easily in 2 feet of snow (wish, wish)!

      We’ve been thinking and talking about how to winterize for months now. Since our tractors are only 2 feet tall, we’d have serious problems if we had another 2 foot snow this year. We’re just finally getting into gear and getting some things done. If we were smart we wouldn’t wait until the cold days to start…
