all cooped up

Do you ever feel all cooped up? 
(Thunder, Kaden and Ham)
Well apparently so do these gals, because they keep escaping!!! 
Any ideas on how to keep them from flying the coop?


Hard to believe they started out this size...
(Back to front - Thunder, Sheba, Ham)


(Chasers) 


(Thunder)


(Ham)



And that's little Sheba Kaden's holding (sniff, sniff)... 

What we thought was a terrible cough developed into a cock-a-doodle-doo. 

She turned out to be a he and we had to return him to the farm.

We sure loved her/him, though!

We replaced Sheba with Pepper, who also developed a loud cock-a-doodle-doo.

We now have Marcia.
We hope she stays cock-a-doodle-doo-less.

Having chickens is an adventure every day.
We get to experience all the miracles of life through these girls.

What a great adventure you are creating for your children, teaching them hard work and self-reliance.
