Yesterday, I received a phone call from Chino the Handyman letting me know he had finally finished building his backyard chicken coop. OH. HAPPY.DAY. Before he could finish talking I cut him off and told him to come on over and The Girl and I would give him four of our older chickens for his coop.
Originally we were only going to give Chino two chickens, Buff and Peter. Our two trouble makers. But Lucy and Goosey had been acting up lately so we decided to
give them the boot give them to Chino as well.
Chino and his four little monkeys could not have been happier. Of course there are two sides to every story, and the chickens may not be so thrilled about the relocation. But I sure am.
The Girl Who Thinks She’s a Bird and I sent Chino home with a bag of straw and a small supply of chicken feed and are hoping for the best. We’ll go over to Chino’s house in a few days to check on the hens to see how they are adjusting.
See you later Buff!
