My New Obsession

Now that we have more outdoor space and no longer have neighbors living right next door we have been talking about getting some chickens. We have been researching what breed, how to build a coop, where to buy them etc.

At the moment I am obsessed with the Americana breed. They lay green/blue eggs that are gorgeous! Another thing that would be fun is to sell those beautiful eggs. We are thinking we would just put up a sign on the nearest street corners and see what happens. Bring a little country to the town sort of thing.

So after alllll the house fix-ups are complete we will be ordering our chicks to be shipped via USPS next spring or summer. We will have the beginnings of a mini farm. Somebody stop us......LOL

Awww - cute! We want to start a little chicken coop in the spring too. Don't know if we'll really do it, but it's so fun to think about!
