kentucky unfried chickens

ken went down to kentucky this weekend to do some work for his parents. he stopped by his brother's small farm on the way home. when he told me where he'd been and said, "i have a surprise for you." my first question was, "is is alive?" i know my husband. he's the sort that will come in the house with something cupped in his hands - toads, snakes, bunnies and once, even a baby raccoon! i was pleased to see my surprise was only a box of chickens. i'd been talking all year about wanting some laying hens. well, now i have nine. and one little banty rooster. today, we need to build a home for them.
pics to follow!

Oh how sweet, now you'll have fresh eggs and chicken poo for your garden. You need to take a picture with overalls on holding a pitchfork. Melly the farmer/gardener/friend.

What fun! I wish we could have hens and a rooster too, but between the coyotes and my dogs...
