Hot wing...


We now have chickens...4 of them. This is Hot Wing, and her sisters are named Pecker, Mrs. Twit, and Fluffy (aka Napoleon). Can you tell that Kicky and EZ E named them? We spent most of the weekend cleaning the yard and getting their coop ready, which made us realize how woefully out of shape we are. My arms ache, but our yard looks so much better. We cut down a bunch of brush between the trees by our shed and made a garden map. It was fabulous to sit outside and make a list of the projects we hope to accomplish this Spring/Summer. First on the list (besides 4 little chickens in a coop): barn roof and electric. That before/after is going to feel amazing! Yesterday I sat in the yard just staring at the barn, imagining a functioning space with art studios and a party loft (sort of like this). Exciting!

I was telling Mary for months before we moved in that we would have chickens at our house since we have a 1 acre property. Not sure now though - technically the covenants for our neighborhood (written 1958) say we can't...but there is no enforcement. I have a few other friends who have chickens at their houses too. They love them, but they don't have the heart to cull the flock when they get older and stop being good egg layers. Then they have pets.

Hey Hot Wing!

Can't belive you guys actually have chicks! Are you going to show us the coop? Do they stay inside with you guys for a bit until they get bigger?

So exciting!
