Foster House had some fluffy guests over Easter weekend…
Aren’t they cute?? These three lovely ladies are new additions to our friends Mike, Ashley & Libby’s family. While Mike and Ashley were out-of-town, Libby brought her new three chick siblings to visit us at Foster House for the weekend.
Last year, Nashville passed an ordinance to allow keeping urban chickens. As much as I love the idea of raising our own food, our backyard is just too tiny to hold a chicken coop. Not to mention with foster dogs coming and going, we might end up going through chickens faster than we went through eggs. (Eeesh) But with a huge back yard and a very well behaved pooch, Mike and Ashley jumped at the chance for fresh eggs.
For now, these three little nuggets (see-what-i-did-there?) live in this cardboard box, but Ashley is hoping that the weather in Nashville starts cooperating soon so they can move out into their coop,* and then hurry up and start producing yummy fresh eggs.
*coop: not to be confused with this Coop:
Does anyone else have experience with rasing hens? Do you have any advice for Mike and Ashley? And, probably most importantly, what should they name their gals? Any ideas?
