    Our 4 chickens arrived this week from My Pet Chicken! They are beautiful and so fun! One for each of us in the family: Daisy, Pearl, Tilly and Henrietta. They are getting used to their new home (built by Green Chicken Coop). I just wish one of the dogs would stop starring at them and running around the coop!!
