Visiting the Exclusive Orem Back-yard Chicken Farm
If only someone would tell me how to get these pictures in the proper order for my story, I would appreciate it. Anyway, this is one of the more exotic chickens in Ann's flock - does she lay eggs?speckled eggs?
The problem with chickens is that they have to be fed and water supplied. We know about milkmaids - is there such a thing as chicken maids? If so, see below. Chicken-keeper with a smile! That's Ann!
And, here is the famous chicken coop that Paul built - complete with canvas wrap so that the snow will stay away from the chickens. This repaves the infamous blue tarp that was Ann's nemeses last winter.
Note at the back of the coop on for far right side, the laying boxes that jut out from the coop - Gathering eggs is simple - lift the lid and there are the eggs. What cooperative hens!
It was fun to see how well this whole system works, but it has taken quite a bit of effort for those fabulous eggs.
