Buh-bye chickens...

We gave our chickens away!

We had 5 hens in a pen Furry Husband made for them. Once we brought Toe home, the chickens had to be moved out of the yard area. Toe is a BIRD DOG and he really, really, really wanted a chicken.

We didn't like having the chickens out in the pasture running extension cords out to heat their water and they became out of sight, out of mind. They were fed and watered but living on the periphery and not really enjoyed as part of the "herd", you know?

Furry Husband's buddy, Josh, wanted chickens. He built a pen and we gave him our girls. He is overjoyed to have them and our feedstore sells eggs from locals so we'll buy them there... still farm fresh.

Win - win.

Glad they've gone to a good home where they won't lead Toe into evil! ;)
