Well y’all, we are doing the chicken dance around here!
You may remember that two years ago we built a coop for some chickens.
The boys help us make it, and they loved every minute of it!
I took a picture of them by the fence poles and told them I would take a picture of them by the poles every year to show how much they have grown! Eli was 5, Adam was 9, Luke was 11, and Jonathan was 13.
Well, I forgot to take a picture last year. #mommyfail
But I got one this year, and look at the difference!
Jonathan is now 15, and he is taller than the fence post. Luke is 13, and is almost to the top of the fence post. Adam is 11 and has grown a little bit. He hasn’t hit his growth spurt yet, but I am sure it is coming soon. And then “Low Man” Eli, has definitely gotten bigger. (Our neighbor nicknamed him “low man” because he is low man on the totem pole.) ;)
Well, I never posted about it on my blog, but our chickens didn’t survive the summer. :( We are not sure what wild animal got to them, but none of them survived. #itwasasadday
We decided not to get chickens last year, but this year, we had to have them. The boys secured the coop a little better to keep the wild critters out of it. We are feeling we are more ready this year to raise our chickens!
We picked out 6 chickens, and then got four Production Reds the next day, so we have a total of 10.
They are super, super cute!
