Chickens!

Several weeks ago, these critters took up residence in my new sun room.


For a few days, they were content to live in a Rubbermaid storage container, but they soon grew large enough to move into a more open, airy space--a rabbit pen. That funny red glow is their heat lamp.


They received lots of love and attention, particularly from the girl child of our family who is shown here with Penelope. Yes, all of the chickens have names.


The baby chicks grew and grew--almost right before our eyes. They soon ourgrew the rabbit cage and needed a space of their own.


Behold, the chicken tractor designed and built by Husband and Daughter. The chickens love their new space!


We still have six bantams in the sun room. They have graduated from the Rubbermaid bin to the rabbit cage. Another chicken tractor will be built for them, and I hope to have a chicken-free sun room within the next month!
