Spring is coming

Look what's laying around here lately...
Our hens like to take a holiday and mosey around their coop during mid-winter. But once the days start getting a little longer, it's their signal to get back to work.

Our bounty from this past week:

We love the colors and different shapes. The greenish-blue ones are from our Araucanas, and the little off-white ones are from the Bantams.

The chickens live very happily in a portable coop my husband and boys constructed. I think it has a bit of a European flair. The chickens think so too. They are quite distinguished.
The boys move the coop every morning to a new buggy spot in on the lawn, and the chickens just eat it up.
After the feast, they retire to the bedroom suite above...
and lay their European blue and white eggs.
Plans for the chicken's penthouse can be bought here from Catawba.
