We went to my brother's house for a Mother's Day BBQ. It was a delicious meal with great company--a great way to spend a Mother's Day evening. For Jacob, one of the best parts of the visit was playing with the cousins' new chickens. Jacob loved running after them trying to catch the quick little guys. He would catch one and it would flap its wings and escape. Jacob would laugh and run after another one and try to catch it. He was trying to catch them all and put them in the coop. At one point he had them all in their little house. It was so cute. On the way home Jacob asked if we could get some chickens. I asked him where he thought we should put them and he said, "In the back yard of course". If you have ever been to our home, you know that there isn't room enough for chickens. It is too bad because they were very cute. --emily

Our neighbors used to have chickens, a rooster, and two turkeys. The turkeys used to terrorize adults and kids alike. The chickens ran all over our yard before it was landscaped. The rooster crowed day and night. It is quiet and peaceful now. I think all the foul have been eaten.
A couple of neighbors a few streets over keep chickens for the fresh eggs and it works out great.
Chasing chicken looks like fun for Jacob.

Fun! We've thought about getting chickens. I've been doing my research to see if it's something we want to take on. But you sure make it look fun!

I love these pictures - but I'm reluctant to let my kids see them. They'll want us to get chickens too!
