Empty Nest!

The girls left home today. Left our mudroom and moved into their new hen house.

The Hens New Digs

The Girls and The Colonel looked very happy in their new digs, running around and pecking wildly at the clover and deadheaded viola flowers we tossed in.

The chickens in their new digs

Paul finished off the inside today – although I’m still painting the outside. And we’ve got to finish their fenced in yard. My mudroom is smelling much better, but it’s kind of sad not visiting the Peepsters when we’re coming and going.

We have an empty nest.

But not for long. Six ducklings were shipped to us today!

Call me crazy.

    Susan, for some reason I can’t picture you as a chicken farmer. What has happened!
