We took a twin sized bed to my daughter's for Emma. She's changed her mind about her bedroom décor ...again. So now it 's a bed with a bookcase headboard and drawers under the bed. She's giving her futon with the bed on top to her other grandma for the lake cabin.
These are Emma's chickens. Well they belong to the whole family...but Emma gathers the eggs at times. I never got a photo of her when she found the first egg. Oh how I would have loved seeing her face.
She has black chickens, red chickens, and these that are black but really golden looking about their heads. Sprinkled along the back too.
Here's little red hen...I used to read that story to my girls. I love this pretty chicken.
Matt (Emma's Dad) has made a bigger pen for the chickens to run around. Hawks have grabbed a few when they have been let out ...so that's why they have a newer pen. Plus Sam (family dog) likes to pet them just a little too hard. LOL
The chickens have worn the grass off this area...just like we did as kids running a ring around our parents house on the corner. They have even dug some holes. Ted says they like to get in the hole to keep cool. I am a city slicker, don't know lots about farm animals. To me chickens are farm animals. LOL.
Liz gave me some eggs while we were there and I forgot them.. So now I'll pick some up on Sunday. Seems more and more people are raising chickens for their own eggs. Probably a good idea.
Hope you are all feeling great today. XO
