Our Life

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

 

A few months ago we decided we wanted chickens so we could have our own supply of farm fresh eggs. We got them just days after they hatched and now they are about 3-4 months old. They should start laying eggs in less than a month now.

We started with 15 but one was killed by a dog and a coyote got another. So we have 13 now and we’re much more protective of our chickens. In fact I’m planning on going coyote hunting soon!

Here are some pictures our chicken adventure:

All set – now we just need the chickens!

    • Hey Grandma, glad to see you found our blog! Yeah, I wish I could take credit for building that chicken coop but it wasn’t me. We ordered it from a business in Oregon who makes them. We started with 15 chickens and now we’re down to 12 (stupid coyotes and dogs!). Country living is fun! We enjoy it very much.
