We have chickens!

We picked up Corrina, Lou Lou, Helen and Madame Mimi (or “Dat” as Hugo would actually name her I’m sure) from Comps Poultry Farm in Herne Hill yesterday. They are 5-week old 3/4 leghorns, two black, two white. It’ll be a while until they start laying (18-22 weeks) so we’re just fattening them up now and welcoming them to the family. The dogs were ecstatic at their arrival, needless to say! So far so good though and we haven’t had any carnage. The dogs have done serious perimeter investigation and have not found a way into our new coop. And they won’t! I’m stoked and the kids are really interested in them so that’s good.
