My oldest daughter Ella is now a self proclaimed chicken farmer. Like most things concerning her she takes her tasks very seriously. She likes to feed, water, and give the chickens daily check-ups. Her favorite chicken named Little gets the brunt of her attention. He is the most easily caught and so she can be seen packing him around quite often. Here is a short video of her giving him a check-up. As you can see she gives a very thorough check-up!
Since the chickens have grown so much they were in need of a more permanent residence. We got them a very cute little coop! They love to roam the yard eating bugs and dusting all over the place, so we plan to put them in the coop each night and let them out to "play" every morning. The girls have been calling it the chicken "club house". Here are some pictures of the coop construction. Daddy had lots of help from his girls!
