Chicken Fever

Look out house projects you're about to get the shove, it's time to get ready for our first little flock of backyard chickens! After months of reading, looking and pining I finally decided it was time to just jump so last week I ordered 11 chicks from Meyer Hatchery.

I'm now alternating between excitement that reaches Christmas Eve as a kid proportions and full on panic. When we started thinking about chickens my idea of enough was 3, but the more I researched the larger that number got. That cute little dog house I got off Craig's List a few months ago, that would have housed 3 beautifully with a few modifications, is now going to need major a full on addition. Luckily a friend has offered up her now unneeded coop. Oof. I feel another adventure coming on!
