Joy d'œufs


I'm not sure if I ever mentioned that The Boy was building us a chicken coop. Well, he did, and this past weekend we visited some dear friends and came home with four hens. 


I love observing them as they wander around our little acre. I love gathering the eggs and creating meals and dishes with them. I love watching them meander back to the coop as dusk closes in and the light starts to fade. I love living simply, in as close a rhythm to Nature as I can muster.

With that, I have four pounds of beans waiting to be blanched for the deep freeze.

Peace.

We have had chickens off and on. I like having them, but I didn't do a very good job with them, except when I was in high school.

That is a seriously cool chicken coop. Years ago, we found a stray domestic rabbit, so my hubby got busy building her a super nice hutch. No sooner did we pop her inside when she had 8 bunnies for him to build more hutches for!

Grew up with great flocks of chickens. They are such interesting creatures, each with its own personality. Enjoy yours!

My family and I would love, love, LOVE to have some chickens for ourselves, too. I'm quite jealous! :)

It's really fulfilling raising your own animals and making food from what they provide!

That coop is pretty incredible, too. Make sure to tell The Boy I said job very well done :)

Thank you, one and all, and I'll be sure to share the kind words re: the coop to my spouse (The Boy). :)

Cool coop, and it looks like it's easily moveable. Hens are such fun! They do have their own personalities, and I love the different sounds they make, like when they find a good bug. The others come running to see what was caught (and take it if possible). Enjoy your hens!
