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!
