The scoop on the coop: A Busy May Update

We have a lot going on this month, school is almost out for the summer and will be out for good for my husband’s daughter Kaitlyn. It really seems like she was just five years old and now she’s graduating high school! We have both kids awards days to attend along with a shower and wedding which I’m not sure we will be able to make it to. Oh and graduation dinner! Either way it’s way more on my plate than I’m use to event wise. So I’m squeezing in an update here because I don’t think I will get much else accomplished this month. 

The scoop on the coop: 

Our chickens have been outside for a few days now. At first I felt all worried like I was their mother hen or something. But they are doing so great and I’ve found that their favorite snacks are wild strawberries! My two favorites are the barred rocks they are very sweet birds. And the two brown which I believe are Rhode Island Reds are really mean and peck a lot! I hope they will calm down as they mature. 

 I’m not 100% sure on the sexes but it does seem like we have one rooster which I’ve named Elvis. If he turns out to be a girl it will surprise me since he has the largest comb and wattle!

This is Elvis right before we moved them outside. 

Here are a few pics of our temporary coop!
