Chicken Nuggets

I haven’t blogged much about our chickens because I kind of hated them for awhile.  Like majorly regretted the decision to get chickens because all they did was poop and run away from us.  And then they started laying eggs and they got really nice.  I didn’t think we would use too many of their eggs, but we eat all of them.  We haven’t even had extras yet to gift family or friends.  I believe three out of our four chickens are now laying.  The fourth should start laying any day now.  And that’s our second ameraucana.  I hope she lays blue or green eggs!

Brayden LOVES our chickens.  Probably because they are a living relative of dinosaurs.  We let them out to free range for a few minutes once or twice a day and he’s very protective of them.  And the only one who can get them back in their coop.  Because I’m not picking them up if I don’t have to.

This shot was taken when it was practically dark out.  We were so excited about getting our first pink egg that I had to get a shot.  It was shot at F 1.4, 1/30, ISO 1600.  I’m surprised I could get Kennedy to stand still long enough to get a shot that wasn’t blurry.

    Basically why I never REALLY truly harassed hubby to get chickens in our slope 🙂 I am still jealous of eggs though. Love the pics! B is so brave!
