We Got Chickens!

J has been looking forward to chickens for months now, and the day has finally come! When we went to pick up those raspberry canes a while back we arranged with the wonderful woman who owns the property to purchase some baby chickens she had hatching. There were 2 successful chicks in this batch and we brought them home on Friday at 6 weeks of age. We have a few more coming when they are old enough, but for now we are working to make Bubble and Squeak comfortable.

In their new home! The coop is secure, but the run needs a bit more work before it’s mink/raccoon proof. I’ll post more pictures when it’s complete.

The local grocery store puts boxes of old produce out back for people to take to their chickens and/or rabbits, and today we scored a box with chard, apples, tomatoes, carrots, celery, potatoes and onions (not for chickens or bunnies but maybe for planting or pickling). YUM.
