This will be a very brief post. But it covers some things. First, we moved!! We finally bought a house. Which means our homesteading dreams are coming true.
We bought a modest house on 9600 sq ft, with a huge front porch in a no HOA neighborhood. The front yard will (hopefully) soon be a garden and or hard.
But currently the most exciting thing is…we got chickens!! I bought a coop and supplies off Craigslist. 4 days later a friend (who also moved) offered me his bigger coop and existing flock, which I gladly took in.
The coop we bought is a 4x6x4.
The coop we ended up inheriting is 4x8x8.
We adopted two Leghorns and a Rhode Island Red. Then I bought a Black Star and a Columbian Wyandotte.
All the girls seem to be adapting okay. They are cooped at night but free ranged in the yard during the day.
