One of the best additions to our life lately has been a delightful little brood of hens.
Husband bought 10 of them on a whim one day at an auction, though we'd been wanting some for awhile.
The locals like to tease him, telling him he paid too much, but i say a deal is determined by how much something is worth to you.
According to that, these were a steal.
I figured they'd be great to have for eggs but i never imagined how much i'd come to love having them. I don't want to be without chickens again, as long as it's possible to have them.
They are endlessly entertaining to watch, require very little care, and give back so much!
I love love the fresh eggs we get every day.
Another added bonus that i was not expecting is that that Husband enjoys them as well, so it's something we are actually doing together, which is funny to me, i mean...
I thought a Friday night date night would keep a marriage lively, who knew the chickens would do so much more!
So now people call me the chicken lady.
In my wildest dreams that's never one i entertained, but nevertheless, here we are!
Plenty of people in the neighborhood have chickens, so i'm not sure how i got the honor.
I don't suppose it could have anything to do with the fact that i like to have tea on the hammock in the yard next to the chickens?
Doesn't anyone else do that?
