I have to tell you, I am in love with 31 beautiful hens! We have adopted them from two different friends of ours who had to give them up for various reasons and we are glad we did.
I get up every morning, get the kidlets out the door to the bus, come in for breakfast, tidy up a bit and then I rummage around my fridge to see what looks wilted or past it's prime. I take it to the cutting board where I chop it into chicken bite size pieces and fill my #10 can. I then slip on my rubber boots and head to the beloved chicken coup. I open the Door and there are 31 beautiful ladies happy to see me, yes I guess it could be the can full of food, but I like to think it is me!
The best part is that I don't have to be out there at the crack of dawn because they need time to lay their eggs. That fits perfectly into my day. Just about everyday some of them get out and we have to go out and put them back in. But secretly, I love watching them roam around the yard. Today I found two perfect brown eggs tucked away in a thicket behind the coup.
If you have ever dreamed of owning your own lovely hens, do it! They are wonderful!
I hope you have a cheery day, I plan to!
