The Chickens are Here!

Mar 26, 2009

Today, I had a sales call at NHG from Dan at Bagienice Farms in Poetry, Texas. We're working on selling urban chicken keeping supplies at the garden center soon (exciting).  I believe Dan is better known as "The Chicken Man."  Not only did he deliver my very own chicken tractor to my house on his way out of town, BUT he also brought me LOANER CHICKENS! Total surprise. I plan on visiting Dan at his farm in about a month to pick up my juvenile Ameraucanas. He wanted me to have some layers in the meantime. Is that awesome, or what? So now I'm terrified I'm going to do something wrong with these lovely leghorn loaners...wish me luck! We let them out for a while and the sight of Sean and I trying to corral them back into the coop must have looked hilarious. We are definitely chicken wrangler newbies...more to come!

I think you’ll find that if you let them, they will put themselves back in the coop at sundown.  Ours do, at least.
