I did it!!! I convinced the beloved that chickens are a good idea! so starting soon we will begin the construction of a coop..he is currently online looking at coop kits rather than gathering the plans and materials himself because cost wise the kit just makes more sense! I cannot wait, i'm thinking small...just 3 or 4 of the little guys, they have to live in the house for a while until the weather warms up and they get bigger...not even sure if i will actually get to order them this season, it may have to wait until next Spring....depending on how quickly we can construct and all! i have all kinds of sites bookmarked and have been reading and picking the brains of some of my friends who have chickens....all of them have nothing bad to say at all! the eggs are delish and the poop makes good fertalizer for the lawn! Cody is super excited, Emily not so much. I think the boys will be good with helping, so wish me luck as i try to convince beloved that sooner is much better than later :)


  1. OMG Diva!! YAY!!! That is capital A awesome!!!
    I can't wait to hear more! What type of chickens??

  2. I am leaning toward the Plymouth Rock chickens for many reasons: A. they are a heritage breed B: they are a sturdy hearty bunch C: they are not aggressive and quite lovable (as far as chickens go) and D: they look puuuuurty!
