My Backyard Chickens Are Here!

This is going to be so much fun! I have 3 beautiful golden sex link hens. So far just the one is laying, we have had them for 3 days and she has laid 2 eggs. So exciting! I am completely new to this whole backyard farmer thing but I am so into it and think it will be fantastic! I am going to make the best home I can for my chickens and hopefully they will love us and give us plenty of delicious eggs! Here is a few more shots:
This is my coop I bought from http://e.thecluckstopshere.ca/ from a very nice man named Dave Scherle (AKA Farmer Dave) They have a ton of info on chickens and coops!
This is our first beautiful egg!
My girls have a huge run, it is about 100 feet by 15 feet and fenced off all around. I have netting on top to keep hawks from getting them and I built them this log climber that they seem to enjoy. I look forward to sharing my backyard farming experience with you! I have joined this community that is full of everything you need to know about backyard chickens http://www.backyardchickens.com/

If you want a laugh and a new found friend check out my new idol at https://www.youtube.com/user/onegirlsrant and her blog at http://onegirlsrant.com/!

Many of the things she says I am taking to heart, off I go to shop at my local farmers market for Christmas gifts!
