There has been a wonderful new addition to our yard! That’s right… chickens! To say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement. I’m thrilled to finally have chickens! I’ve wanted them ever since we moved here because they are so helpful. Seriously! #1. They eat bugs. And weeds. And we have a ton of bugs and weeds. The gnats and mosquitos and ticks and stink bugs were just crazy last year. I can’t wait to let my chickens eat them for me. #2. They will lay eggs! Ryan’s favorite breakfast is eggs, and no matter what eggs I buy from the grocery store I really can’t be sure how well treated/fed those chickens were. With mine I’ll know. Also three of them are easter egger chickens so I might get some blue/green eggs! It’s super exciting! I can’t wait to share more with you through the year. For now here is a photo of two of our chickens. the one on the left is a Buff Orpington. She will grow up to be a beige color and is so sweet natured. She also needs a name if you have any suggestions! The one on the right is one of my easter eggers. I think she is adorable and looks like a chipmunk. We named her Pip. She is a good girl too, and very curious.
