Chickens return home

After an extended summer camp at Town Board member Mary Ann Sumner's house, the chickens have finally returned home. They didn't love the brief journey home in feed bags - "Bright white! Is this chicken heaven?" - but they snapped back to normal chicken-hood very quickly.

The chickens got to enjoy exciting activities like dusting while they were away, and doubled in size (again). They should just about double in size one more time before they're ready to start laying. (They're all hens.)

I've posted a gallery of fence-building and chicken photos if you'd like to see more. The next big project - in August - will be building them a coop.
