I thought I'd share some pics of our new adventure...chickens! Our town finally passed an ordinance that would allow us to have up to six chickens and/or rabbits within the city limits. We live in a farming community of 1200 people, and we couldn't have them in town. Go figure. Even Denver and Colorado Springs allowed chickens. But that is a story for another day.
My dad had already given us a chicken coop he made. Talk about a handy-dandy thing. He even had a scale model of it, and has drawn out plans for it if anyone wants to build one. Our coop will be mobile so we can move it around anywhere in the yard. Can you say weed control?!
Today he brought down the chicken run which you will see him and Sunny putting together. There are just a couple more adjustments to make. We have to get it inspected by the Code-Enforcement Officer who will sign off on it, and then it'll be all set for the ladies. No roosters allowed.
My dad and I along with Ajack's tail.
After the coop and run were all set up, we went to the restaurant where our daughter Chelsie, works. Mexican food day. Yum! Here she is serving our lunch.
My dad ordered the Green Chili Slopper. I don't know if you all have Sloppers in your neck of the woods, but it's quite a big deal here. I think Guy with Diners, Drive-ins and Dives did a show on a Slopper contest in the city 35 miles west of us. It's basically a open-faced hamburger with green chili poured over the top along with the fixins and served with smothered fries. It's not my favorite as I'm not big on soggy bread. Dad loved it!
Have you ever had a waitress eat off your plate? While her sister is in the ladies room, Chels decides to help herself to some of Grace's food. Just another thing you can get away with in a dinky town I guess!
Hopefully we'll have everything ready for our chickens in the next couple of weeks. I'm so excited!
It's All Good!
