June/July 2010

June/July 2010

A month ago I bought this magazine at my local Barnes and Nobles. The June/July 2010 issue of Organic Gardening has a great section on backyard chicken flocks. They even discuss how to handle your neighbors' objections. NOT that I have had that problem. My neighbors are buying their compost for their gardens. THey love them.

Meet the girls!

My backyard flock consists of 4 Rode Island Reds and 2 Blue Andalusians.  Well one is blue and the other is black.

The girls are growing up.

My girls are growing so big.  I am figuring out their personalities.  Big red is bossy, Lilly is sweet, Daisy is miscervious, and the 3 red ladies are shy and timid.  My husband told me today that he really enjoys watching them.  Chickens in the backyard is like your own personal comic adventure.

My girls are so messy.  I swear, I just cleaned their coop this moring.  I have been very good about cleaning up their droppings every morning.

More pictures of my coop

The door to the egg boxes.  It has a hen on it, but it is hard to see in the picture.

Here are some more pictures of the coop and yard cont.cont.
