Quick Chicken Update! (July 2014)


The chickens have been doing surprisingly well with their indoor coop and free time running around the house.

Sure, Gertie (the white one that is NOT a rooster, I swear) crows every morning and that’s kind of loud, but she doesn’t crow earlier than 7:30am so I’m usually already up by the time she starts caterwalling. I throw some oats in the coop and she’s happy for the rest of the day.

The one in Mr. Brickie’s arms and on my shoulder is Raven and the others in the top-right photo are Strawberry in the upper-left and Bird in the upper-right.

If you have any questions about the chickens, feel free to ask.

They are 11 weeks old today and we don’t expect them to lay their first egg until they are about 6 months old.

Gosh, they’ve grown so much!
