Peeps in the house


week 1

Despite growing up in a crowded L.A. suburb, we had three city chickens. I always planned to have them again, once I had my own house.

However, it was actually Lorraine that launched us into full city-chicken planning mode...

A little research revealed that lots of people keep "city chickens" these days, especially in Seattle. As a result, we started planning own backyard flock.

This weekend, we finally got our chicks.

Meet Millie, Flo and Phyllis. Millie is an Americana, Flo is a Gold laced Wyandotte, and Phyllis, my favorite, is a Buff Orpington.

When they grow up, they will look like this:

Since we blew it on the house warming for our house, we plan to have a chicken-house warming party for the girls when the house is finally finished.
