Bon Appetit

Like all chickens, my chickens are treat obsessed.  Every time I approach the coop, the girls start running back and forth at the edge of the coop waiting for a treat.  I guess I have developed this behavior because usually when I check on my chickens, I bring them something from the kitchen.  They love treats.  One of their favorites is strawberries.  In the following video, I hand feed my chicks, and you can see how they go crazy over treats.

Waiting for Eggs

Well, it has been some time since my last post.  There has not been much to report.  The chickens are growing, but they have not yet started laying.  The initial estimate was they would start producing around May 25th.  So, it is one week later than expected at this point.  However, I think it may still be a few weeks before I see my first egg, as the girls are still a little on the small side (I think they may have been younger than 14 weeks when I got them).  Hopefully it won't be to much longer; I am really looking forward to those fresh eggs.
