chicken little and chicken mcqueen

those are the names of 2 of the 4 chickens who are now a part of the verwys family urban farm. ryan used his great handy man skills and built a chicken coop for our backyard, thanks to eric and aaron's help as well. last night we went to a local feed store in bellflower, one of bellflower's hidden gems. this place sells chickens, goats, bunnies, mice, doves... right here in good old bellflower. so now we have 4 chickens that will eat the compost items and make more compost for our garden. we've had one escape attempt and almost death due to sienna just about capturing the poor chicken. now we just need malachi to understand he can't open the door to the coop. we'll let you know when we get our first egg!

Hopefully I can come eat a scrambled egg when I am in town for UYWI? :) Thanks for the comment about my eye balls...I'm pretty excited about it.
