Did I mention I like birds?

I am a bird lover.  I have 5 parrots. I have helped with parrot rescue and owner education.  I love watching birds outside too.

So now…I have chickens!!  WOOT!

I live in the city.  I am now an urban farmer.  How do you like them apples?  LOL

Last year we put in a multi-level garden.

This year, it’s chickens.  I like eggs.  My family loves eggs.  I hate the inhumane treatment of chickens in battery farms.  My husband has first hand knowledge of that since he grew up working on one.  50,000 chickens.  I could not imagine.  Of course, they had their beaks cut off and never saw the sun in their entire short egg-laying lives.

My girls have already learned the yumminess of fresh veggies, cooked rice and barley, mealworms  (I didn’t prepare those).   I can’t wait until they move out of the back bedroom into their new digs.

I am expecting my first omelet about September.  Yum!  Can’t wait.

My husband did a fabulous job on the coop.  He is an amazing carpenter.  I will be painting it red as soon as it dries up outside.  We followed directions from here:

And the chickies!

What fun!
