Down on the Farm

We picked up 2 chickens for free yesterday, so my fantastic daughter and I finished setting up the chicken coop. We have ISA Brown hens. Chris already plucked an egg out of the coop and cooked it up for lunch. His facebook says it was delicious! I'm a bit jealous. The 2 hens seem happy with their limited surroundings. We have to finish up a fence and a gate to the garden. After watching them last night, I now know why you wouldn't want them in a garden with young plants. They really scratch up the dirt getting at worms and other bugs just under the surface. I can hardly wait to see them pluck hornworms off my tomatoes!!!!!
