We're getting chickens!
Hubby and I have talked about this before. We have a neighbor who has this fancy schmancy limestone chicken coop in a corner of her backyard, called Coop de Ville. (We live in the city, so this is quite a rarity.) Anyway, last time we talked about it, we had just brought our three home from Liberia and weren't in need of any extra anythings to think about. (Whew, I'm glad we're well past those days. ) So in the last month, we've been talking about it again and getting pretty excited about the prospect of fresh eggs.
I just ordered our chicks today and here's what we're getting:
2 White RocksWe chose these three for their temperament and egg laying skills. While we were discussing this with the kids, Maya said, "I used to have my own chicken in Liberia." Huh? Then Daniel pops in and says the same thing. Questioning looks are directed at Maya. She confirms it. Isaac also confirms this. Apparently, all three of them have experience with chickens. Bonus!
Any chicken wisdom you farm folks got, I'm all ears.
