|The girls exploring|
Considering we go through roughly two dozen organic eggs a week, I thought this was a brilliant idea in combating my extremely high grocery bill. What is better than having a pet that can actually provide something of substance like the incredible edible egg!! Now, I’m not sure if there will be a return on our investment, I won’t tell you how much I’ve actually spent on my 6 friends, but the point is, beginning last week, each day the kids and I walk to the chicken coop and collect our beautiful reward: Gorgeous EGGS!
|Isn't it a beauty!|
Not only do my cluckity clucks as I so lovingly call them provide doubled yoked gigantic eggs, they give us so much entertainment! These days my ideal evenings are spent lying in my hammock watching the girls hunt for bugs and feeding them watermelon out of my hands. And, as if on cue, each night around seven o’clock Naughty Nelly and Plymouth Rock maintain their posts on our gate fence to guard our backyard. Who needs a guard dog when you have chickens? Heck who needs a dog or cat when you can have chickens??? In my humble opinion they are the perfect pet! I think my man and kids would agree!
