For as long as I can remember, I have wanted chickens. When we were first married, we lived in a little rural community where many of our neighbors had them, and we got our eggs fresh from them. There is no comparison. Ever since we have lived here, where we have the property, I have wanted them. But then there is the matter of a chicken coop and all of that. Mr. G is not the building type, really. A few years back, a friend of my Mom's was going to build me one. But it never happened. My little brother, you know him, the Celine Dion fan, he has a hen. He got her a year or so ago. She is an egg laying machine!!! Every time I am over there, I say, I want your chicken...can I have her? Last night he called me and said, hey, I am sending the chicken out tomorrow. WHAT? Where ever will I put her? I need to find a spot. AND FAST!!! I got up early this morning and at first light, came out to see where I could put her. Two guys from work came out today, with a truck of scrap wood and a roll of chicken wire, and built me a coop! I was GIDDY!!! Say hello to my new girl.
Then it was time to let Chicky check out her new digs.
Thank you Tim! I am so excited to have my first hen and hen house!!!
