Insert “chicken joke” here.

Remember all of those posts I had in store for you? Well, the list is only growing.
Because we got chickens.
It still sounds absurd when I say it, or type it. It all happened so fast. Turns out Kenny was serious.
Right now, as I type this to you, there are five chickens roaming about our backyard, pecking and scratching to their heart’s content. So is my husband. It’s quite fun to watch.
I’ll be honest, my skepticism stands corrected and I am already quite fond of the little guys. Er, gals. I thought it would take weeks to warm up to having birds around, but they’re endearing. The girly-girl in me wishes they were a bit cuddlier, but I think they want to keep the relationship professional.
And did I mention that the eggs are delicious? Because they are. [Author’s irrelevant note: this brunch of fresh eggs and an avocado of perfection was later joined by the ripest peach of summer. There is also fresh food for dinner. I think I finally awoke from my Top Tamen Coma. PTL!]
Oh, how our family has grown. Now we can readjust our egg budget and look forward to eggs of many colors, too. Some shells are pink, some are green or blue, and there just may be more colors to come.
This is determined by the color of their earlobes.
You didn’t know that?
