Farm Girl Update

My friend Leah likes to call us "farm girls" even though we are mostly just wannabes.
Our chickens are full grown now and the six of them produce about four eggs a day.  I have named our Rhode Island Reds Dottie (red dot on her head) and Pepper.  The white Leghorns are Bianca and Bianca and the Sexlinks are Hilda and Hilda.

Getting our daily eggs

The garden is currently producing green beans, two types of cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchinis, japanese eggplants, strawberries, mint, basil, and lavender.

Jealous. All I've got to say! =)

I'm so grateful to have gotten a few of these eggs. YUMMY :) And the chickens are so pretty.
As a side note...if you are ever missing a chicken, look in the window well. I've watched Elora dump a few of them down there :)

That little boy holding the chicken is the sweetest thing I've ever seen!
