Chicken Update

Those chickens have been busy. 



I had heard chickens could be loud and I thought, as did my neighbors, that we had quiet chickens. What I didn't read in any book is that when the chickens start laying the noise kicks in. The first few times they laid we thought there was a predator in the yard and went rushing to the coop. It turns out when a chicken pushes one of those eggs out they just need to let everyone know. I imagine they're saying "look what I did!" or "OMG what is happening?!" it's the typical loud brock brock brock noise and we now hear it every morning, luckily not too early!

It's amazing how loud chickens are when they're laying! If I laid an egg practically every single day, I'd announce it, too. Summer is a bit of a problem because they hens are up with the sun...Your eggs look lovely.

I was thinking about the summer and laying earlier, of course we had to put the coop under our bedroom window : )
