Chicken farmers?

Ummm…. at what point does one officially become a chicken farmer? And does it count if you didn’t really mean to do it?

Somehow we’ve gone from two fluffy chooks scratching about the garden to…. 15!!!! Officially the most recent 8 aren’t yet scratching about the garden, they’re still chirping away in our dining room.  After purchasing the gorgeous Faverolle’s (3 of which have turned into roosters…. and will soon be up for grabs by the way!), the boys childcare had some chickens hatch, and they had to get rid of them. We agreed to three….. we came home with 8. Not really sure how, why or what they are even…. but they certainly are VERY cute and provide hours of entertainment for both big and little kids in the house.

    From my experience on the farm in Israel, if you treat them right those little fellas will be ready for the table in two months! :p
