So, I spent the last year raising my four lovely hens. We started out with three and added the fourth later.
Now that it has been basically a full year, I have decided I’ve had enough of the joy that comes with having chickens in a small yard. I love my chickies. I really do. I love the eggs. But then there’s the list of what I don’t love; chicken droppings in multiple piles all over my back deck and even on the chairs and tables *shiver*, utter desolation where once there grew green lush plants like hosta, bleeding heart, hydrangea and *sobbing* peony (these silly birds even ate the roots of my peonies!). They’ve even decimated the lawn. I’ve had enough.
We are giving the girls to a friend who has a yard about four times the size of mine. I think they’ll be quite happy there and they’re just a few blocks away and I will have visitation privileges. ha
So, the adventure of having chickens has been fun but I’m really ready to have flowers and a pretty yard again.
Bring on spring!!
