Our chickens really are a bunch of fun. We really like having them around. Unfortunately, we lost an Americauna hen the other day to a coyote - sad. So, now we have fourteen chickens, with one rooster in the mix. Today we thought we would have some chicken fun while the littles slept upstairs, I quickly grabbed my camera and one of the gingerbread houses the kids made. I snapped several pictures of them eating the house, as well as some of our very handsome rooster. I even got a sequence of a hen laying an egg. Enjoy ....
catching roosters is always a risky business.
This guy will charge you!
Hens raise their tail feathers and nest when they get ready to lay an egg. Then the tail will shake and out it will come ...
We have been getting roughly 5 - 9 eggs a day - just depending. Usually you get less eggs during the winter. So, we are excited to see what summer brings! Want to buys some eggs? LOL

Things to Consider
We so often concentrate on getting our little ones to look good for going to church. Hair: check, dress: check, shoes: check, etc. However, how often do we do a heart check? Making sure our little ones, as well as ourselves, are ready to hear what the Lord might say that morning?
