Chicken & Weims

What the heck have we been up to, you ask?

We're up to our elbows in chickens!!

We've thought about getting chickens for quite some time (over a year really) and finally said let's do it! It's been pretty busy around here between a rabbit, a bird, 3 dogs, and now.... 6 chickens. Cleveland passed a new ordinance a couple years ago that allows us to have up to 6 chickens so that's what we've been doing recently. Building a coop,. preparing the yard, and starting to teach the pups that chickens are not food! The chicks are just over a week old now and growing fast!

 I've been blogging about the chicken adventures taking place at our house for the past few weeks, so if you care to see what it's like adding chickens into your life (or how we got started) you can check it out at:

As far as Darby & Bailey, they are doing well. With the weather getting nicer Bailey likes to stay outside as much as possible. She chases squirrels back & forth all day long... but it keeps her busy :) Darby likes to be inside... go figure??

 I'm going to start desensitizing them to the birds this week so we'll see how it goes!? Bailey has a pretty strong prey drive so we'll just have to see.

   Our daughter (Izzy) is going to be posting on this blog as well. She loves to blog and take pictures with her phone so watch out!

I'm very curious about these chickens... will they be egg layers or just as pets?

Egg Layers and pets for sure. They will be able to free-range in a section of our yard. We expect about 2-3 dozen a week :)
