Peep chirp peep!

They are only two days old. Very cute.




There are 2 Barred Plymouth Rocks and an Araucana. The Araucana isn't a pure breed so there is no guarantee of blue eggs.

When I first became a vegetarian 12 years ago I told myself that I could eat chicken when I raised, butchered and cooked one. It has been so long that I don't want to eat chicken anymore. I'm pretty excited about the eggs and fertilizer though.

Yes, I should have painted it before putting the hardware cloth on.

Yeah! Chickens are so much fun!

Chicken antics and chicken running never cease to make me laugh! Not only do you get eggs and fertilizer, they take any extra food waste off your hands.
