WE have EGGS!!!!!!!!

We love our chickens~ we feed them all kinds of scraps from the kitchen, our juicer and what they don't eat (like lemons) attracts bugs that they do eat :)

Here are all our chickens all grown up!

We bought a straight run which is supposed to be all one sex but we lucked out~ we ended up with 1 Rooster. Can you see him in the back?
We thought it was funny that one chick was bigger than the rest we called "her" BUTCH but just recently we noticed "she" was a "he" which is wonderful news. He cocka doodle do's every morning about 5 am and then again at around 5 pm! Such a cool sound :)

Yesterday Gregg went out to tend the chicks and there were 4 eggs!! Yay!!!

and they were delicious
