eggcellent

it made me rediculously happy yesterday to find this little beauty waiting in one of the nesting boxes:
 next to a store-bought egg:
my two boys. rocky in the front and clyde in the back.
so you can see the size difference between my two roos:
 
 rocky is an old english bantam. he will always be this small.

as the chickens grew, the coop seemed to shrink! clyde found a new home with three hens, in toledo with my friend susan. i hear they're doing very well. now the coop is perfect for rocky and his girls.
the four remaining hens are doing great. no eggs today, but i'm hoping for more happiness soon.

I'm so happy things are well in the hen house...so nice to have your very own eggs. What have you been up to? Things have been quite busy with us, although I think Mike is done with chemo - it was in remission after the 6th and he started having some confusion after the 7th, so we're in a holding pattern now. I had an injection on Mon and am having another next week - this is probably due to all the running to the hospital. We need to talk,,,how's your back,how's the fam, blah, blah, blah. you know.
love you bunches, the bird
