Our New Chickens!!

I still can't believe we actually have chickens! I'm a city girl so having chickens running around the yard is something I never anticipated. Bill and I have been researching and talking to people to get as much info as we can find. The people at Marzen's were incredibly helpful, as well as the folks at Country Junction where we finally picked up them up. We got two each of the Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons, Silver Laced Wyandottes, and the Americaucanas (these are the ones who lay the pretty colored Easter eggs!). I love their funky green feet. 

This Silver Laced Wyandotte almost escaped! Chickens are a lot faster than I thought!

Bringing them home (9/21/12)

Exploring their new coop 

I threw a few crabapples in there but they seemed more interested in their feeder!

Cruisin in the Camaro

The weather has been so gorgeous lately, we decided to go for a cruise in the Camaro around Jim Thorpe. It's such a gorgeous town in the fall. We stopped for pumpkin ice cream at Annie's..what a fun day!

Our Trout Pond

Our trout pond just went from draught conditions to completely full and now they are spawning! It's amazing what a few days of rain can do.
