The Chicken Coop is now open!

We've added six little ladies to our family. 

out from the heat lamp and into the sunlight

They've reached their six week milestone and 
are moving into their newly built chicken coop. 
Can you see the excitement in their eyes?  

When their little chicken feet first touched the 
grass, they froze like statues. They weren't sure
how to walk in it. too funny!

marching one by one to their new home
The kids gently marched them to their new home.


We have raised chickens off & on throughout 
our married life, mostly the Araucana chickens 
that lay the blue eggs. However, after a harrowing
dog experience we took a break. 

Now since building the new reinforced coop, I'm 
hoping this flock survives and supplies us with 
lovely fresh eggs over the next few years! 

Have you ever raised chickens?

  1. OMGoodness, look at those little cuties! And what a fun blog, Maria! I had no idea.....:)
    Love your new little babies. I've never raised chickens, but one of my closest friends does, and I live a little vicariously through her. I am completely stunned by her Easter Egger chickens! She's having some problems, though. Predation has been a bad issue for her...(:

  3. Love them Maria!!
    I have 7 girls right now that are about 4 1/2 years old. There is nothing better than fresh eggs!!!
    Do you have older birds that you are adding these babies to? Always wondered about how to add to a flock without causing too much trouble between the older ones.
