The girls and I have been excited to collect our first eggs from the adopted chickens (not our original Naked-Necks... yet). Knowing that I may not have to buy many eggs at the store in the near future is a rewarding feeling for all the hard work and trauma we've put into this chickens.
The chickens have such different personalities. We know exactly which two hens will be the last in at night. Only one rooster (of three) crows of yet, and he starts early in the the morning. Since their turken tank is directly outside our bedroom windows, I get to hear the symphony! In reality, the noise is not yet as bothersome as some people make it out to be. Since nearby neighbors have had adult roosters since before we moved in, the early crowing is a normal noise.
Until next time, remember, this is not paradise. It's Purgatory Ranch.
