Chickens! Let there be chickens!

Summer

It finally stopped raining, so I picked up my starter chickens today. They are all one year old and just started laying. I got two leghorns (think Foghorn Leghorn) and one red star. They were successfully installed in my Omlet Eglu (that is just fun to say) and are driving the dog nuts by their very existence.

They are rather mesmerizing in their simplicity.

Thanks. But as I left a note for Achaosofkittens this morning - the unexpected scent of hot chicken poop is eye-watering.

True enough. The nasal adjustment period can take a while.

Does this mean that from now I get paid in eggs for farm labor/help? How many eggs does it take to pay for moving 7000 lbs of hay?

Are you offering to move another 5k lbs of hay before I start paying you? 'Cause that could be a while...

This is awesome! I hope you enjoy having chickens. I can't wait to get ours. :)
