We've Got Chickens!

They are finally here! We got four chickens from the great folks at Anoka Farm and Feed, two Barred Rock hens.

Two red Sexlinks (the one below was named Bernie Mac by daughter Alice, and the name has stuck) and two silver laced Wyandottes, whose photos will come later.

And best of all, they came home to a beautiful coop made for me for my birthday by my amazing husband. I wanted a little replica of our garage, since the coop would be positioned against the center of our garage. He did a great job:

The four chickens are about four months old, so won't lay eggs for another couple of months, but we plan to have them laying all winter, so stay tuned for the first egg.
