Our hens turned one today!
Yes, I know it's goofy to celebrate, but of all our pets, they are the only ones whose birthdate I actually know! And we've had such a fun year with our chickens. We still miss Leeroy Jenkins, our beautiful rooster. We had to send him to a new home last August, as he is not allowed in city limits. (He also attacked our poor puppy dog!) Henrietta and Miss Prissy have been lovely, though. We get 10 to 12 fresh eggs a week, and they have so much personality.
Last night, we threw the girls an early birthday party! We hung some barnyard-themed garland on the coop, wore party hats - yes, Mr. B made himself into a roo for the occasion - and served oatmeal-cornbread muffins. (FYI, I left out all the sugar, added a heap of parsley, and substituted applesauce for the eggs.) Big Sis played "Happy Birthday" on her guitar, and yes, we sang to our birds.
We are weird like that.
They didn't seem to care much. I don't think they liked the muffins, either. That's okay. We had fun.
Look how much they've grown! We love our chickens.
If you follow @silvershoesrabbitholes on Instagram, you can see more chicken videos and photos. I rather like my chickies. And I know I skipped over Easter, but you can see a bit of our Easter there and on my @silvershoesrabbitholes_books Insta, too.
Thanks for indulging me! I will be back with a book tomorrow.
