A Thanksgiving Offering

We had some chores to do in the chicken house today; Mike installed a heatlamp to keep the girls cozy in the coming cold weather, and we hung their feeder from the ceiling and raised their water container higher from the ground in an effort to keep shavings out of it. We had shooed them all outside while we worked. I was doing a routine clean, and found these dear little eggs in their nest boxes...haven't checked for a few days, and wasn't expecting any eggs quite yet, as they're not even four months old yet. The first eggs are about half the size that the girls will eventually lay. A lovely surprise for Thanksgiving!

Chicken Watching...Everybody's Doing It

The chickens are an endless source of fascination around here.
Cody and Jasper can't get enough of chicken watching.
Lucy is equally enthralled.

Buck and Rupert, on the other hand, are much more interested in hay than chickens.
