Crazy Chicken Lady

Hello dear friends!

Well…two weeks ago our first foster care placements went home. We miss them dearly, but we are glad we got to be their bonus family for 5 weeks. We are taking a short break before our next placement just while we have some family in town over spring break. Then, we will be so excited to open our home to a new placement of a couple of kiddos : )

Meanwhile, we’re diving into a new adventure- backyard chickens! We have talked about having chickens for years, so it has been a lot of fun actually making it happen. Plus, we like to bring a little mid-west to this sunny, sandy land.

For our first flock we decided to make life a little easier and skip the high-maintenance chick-phase. So our flock is 8 weeks old. We each picked a hen. The girls picked “yellow ones : )” AKA Buff Orphingtons. Mr Manlove and I picked Barred Rocks.

Mr Manlove did a good job engineering our little coop.
