Several months ago, Jacob found out we could own up to six chickens where we live in the city limits. It didn't take long for him to begin construction on a hen house to be tucked away in our backyard. Once Jacob's dad got involved, we had a grandiose poultry paradise.
It was originally supposed to be about half this size. But we like to spoil our chickens. :)
They have a nice little window with a pretty plant ledge.
A little door for easy egg collection.
A pretty, shady white crepe myrtle to keep them from cooking in the backyard.
FRESH eggs are so much better! So fluffy and much more taste.
And Chloe loves her new little friends - I think we have an animal lover on our hands.
Yes, I know her pacifier is dragging the ground - gross. We do clean it.
My favorite hen is the white one with the feathers on her legs - see her there on the left?
