New Additions to Our Family...

Here is the part two post to Anyone want to guess what I have been up to the last 3 days?

So after deciding our family was not complete without chickens in the backyard, the kids and I set forth to build a chicken coop.  Pinterest was a huge help in deciding on a design and who knew there were so many chicken blogs and websites.  Love the fact that my boys are getting older and stronger to help with heavy lifting

Being a little apprehensive about the whole chicken thing (I am a total city girl, with a slight phobia of birds) the kids and I thought that 3 pullets would be a good choice to start with. We started construction the Thursday before Mother's Day and were at the feed store on Mother's Day picking out our new backyard inhabitants.
