Chickens are here!


In most old-fashioned photos of farms and ranches, you'll see a few chickens milling around in the background. Chickens are relatively easy and inexpensive to keep, they provide fresh, nutritious eggs, they control weeds and bugs, they manufacture great fertilizer, and they are a fun and friendly pet.

We stopped by a chicken farm while we were in Denver and picked up eleven new chicks. Hopefully, they'll all make it to the summer and be laying eggs by July.

!!! Can we name one of them Alyson? Or The Wife of Bath? Or The Prioress? I've always wanted to name a bunch of chickens after the characters in Canterbury Tales. I also nominate that we name an animal Chaucer.

Peyton has actually named many of them already. One is Duray, one is auchiboo, one is beebee. But I guess some Canterbury Tales names will be fine--it's just once you name them, you become attached to them and then I would be sad if they meet the same fate as the last chickens. . .
