Deb Has Chickens!!

Here's the bad news ... after a 3 year "discussion" FitzGyver has finally agreed to let me keep a flock of chickens. Why bad news? DH said he would never agree to chickens unless he was pretty sure we're facing the EOTWAWKI ... last week he said go for it ...

The EOTWAWKI officially occurred at 2pm 7/27/2014

I bought a coop from Urban Chickens ....

And the Mike "FitzGyvered" it ....

Then I visited "The Roost" in search of local chickens ...
... and found them just on the other side of town :)

2 Sussexes and 2 Ameraucanas ...

So the World as we knew it has come to an end (EOTWAWKI).  After reading the news the last few weeks I'm not so sure that's a bad thing after all.  And I get chickens!



  1. I have been talking to my husband about this for over a year and he is not being easily persuaded to my points of view. I haven’t given up but the future for chickens my my back yard looks pretty dim. BTW, I love the coop!

  2. Congratulations on your flock! I am so amazed at how entertaining chickens are. Have fun! ~ Rachel @ Grow a Good Life
