From Chicks to Hens


It’s time that I report on the chickens.  So many guests have checked in these past few weeks who hadn’t been here since the baby chicks arrived at the Wayfarer.

These little, yellow, brown and black little puffballs grew into magnificent pets.

We have
Esmeralda – she looks like a gypsy with a golden necklace
Tootsie – she sports 1 golden toe
Snow White – not as white as one might think
Murgatroyd – she’s the whitest of them all
Mrs. Brown – no description needed
and last but not least:
Grumpy – she’s mostly not too happy

Mike built them a gorgeous coup and run, well, see for yourself…

The coop was finished with the help of some [carpenter] guests who helped with the roof pitch design

Yes, they have a picture window. Not that they make use of it, they only go inside to lay their daily eggs

Ohh Ohh, and when there are less than 6 eggs some day, Mike always wants to cook one of my chickens.  Does he not realize that they have names????
