Our new fancy Pets

Since about a month now we have fresh eggs on an daily basis, yesss we have chicken :-) which if you'd asked me a few years back I would've never thought of it as possible.. but it seems like today it's not such a far fetched thing anymore, you know, to have back yard chickens. They are such interesting animals !! We literally sit outside, all five of us and watch "the chickflick" !! 

Here a few pictures of the Chicken Coop in the Make:

May I introduce to you:
  • Olive
  • Roxy
  • Reds
  • Goldy (better pictures will follow, I know this is not the best but it's all I have right now)
From the beginning we've had 1 egg a day which increased to 2-3 eggs a day :-) The boys are thrilled and love watching them. They've been raised by children and are very used to people which is again perfect for us. I needn't say that following to us having chicken is a Lapbook about Chickens which is in the make as you're reading this post so.. stay tuned :-)



  1. We got chickens last spring, and absolutely love them! They are my daughter's pets, and she lovingly cares for them and picks them up like they are her babies :-)

    1. Hi Heather, ah how cute. I can imagine for your daughter to love her chicks ! We have ours since last fall and didn't bring them up ourself just because it wasn't possible time wise but we so enjoy watching them which we call: watching a Chickflick. They were brought up by people with kids and so they're tame and great to handle.

  2. Oh my goodness, what a cute chicken coop! I love it!

    1. Thank you Mystika :-) we had it built fool proof to make sure nothing can get into the coop. My husband and I painted it and I put a fancy touch to it with the green color. It did come out nice, and we are having a blast with the chickens!
