For some odd reason I decided I wanted to raise chickens and for some odd reason my parents are letting my keep them at their house. I know, huh?! All I had to do was ask, "Can I keep chickens in your backyard?" Who knew?
My first task was finding an appropriate breed. I wanted Dominiques, but I would have had to order eight or more online. Strike that! So my husband brought home four little Barred Plymouth Rocks. Score!
Of course I gave them "old lady" names because it wouldn't seem right if I didn't. Myrtle, Maude, Eleanor, and Pearl.
Then I let them stink up the bathroom for four weeks while we setup their coop and they worked on feathering out.
