The Coop

Oh, the fluffiness!

Oh, the fluffiness!

The chickens have really taken over.  But that’s the way we like it.  Not only do they provide us with constant chuckles and fresh eggs, they have really, truly opened our eyes to the locally-sourced food concept.  It’s nice to know when and where these eggs came from.  Thank you, my fluffy-butted little egg-makers!

A few of our all-time favorite chicken posts:

      I agree! So sad to see I’ve made it back to the beginning and have no more catching up to do.

    I stumbled on this blog while looking for gardening tips and I must say you are HILARIOUS! I love your humor and adore reading about your chickens and the adorable crafty things you do! I have SO many ideas now and surprisingly I have gotten my husband to go along with all of them so far. Thanks for the laughs. 😉

    Absolutely obsessed with everything you’ve got going on here. I want to move in with you guys! I’ll sleep in the yard. Question about the chickens…we live in NJ and are finding there are strict laws with property boundaries and spacial requirements to raise chickens. I’m guessing things are a little more lax in SoCal because it doesn’t appear that you have a particularly large piece of property?

      Hahhaha! Thank you, Carolyn! You know what? There are plenty of restrictions here, too–they are allowed, but yes, there are all sorts of rules and regulations about them. And the bottom line is that with our 7500 sq foot property, these birds (and dogs and cats) are all really close to my neighbors. This is why I go to great lengths to keep everything super clean, and make sure they aren’t making too much noise (I am at home mostly every day, so this is pretty easy for me). It’s an interesting dance!

    Your sweet hens looked like they are spoiled and well loved. I do the same for my girls. They even have a chandelier in their hen house. They work so hard to provide me with great eggs I feel I owe it to them. LOL.

      I totally agree–and I’m in the market for a chandelier for our henhouse! LOL! Just haven’t found one that’s quite right yet. Love it! Thanks for sharing!
