Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

To come live at my place!! 
True story! Yesterday I got chickens from a friend that lives down the road aways and on the other side.
Right now they're in their temporary coop.  Its a little bit  lot, redneck. We're using the old dog kennel as their run and they have a little pallet coop and a doghouse for shelter.  There are 6 ISA hens and an ISA roo, plus a few Ameracauna pullets.
Hera seemed to realize that guarding them is part of her job, she hasn't made one aggressive move toward the coop and has chased off the cats when they get too "stalker"ish
Although that doesn't stop them from coming back to check things out.
I didn't hear the rooster at all this morning, but around 1:30 this afternoon he crowed a bit.  The ISA hens are very friendly and will even eat feed out of your hand.
We're planning a bigger coop and run, just need some time and for the weather to cooperate!


  1. Prepare to be entertained. I am glad I dont have chickens, but to enjoy the antics other peoples pull while watching them.

  2. Going to the birds? My folks need to get some chicks too..:-)
