Where the magic happens

When we moved into a house with a big backyard, I was excited to have a small flock of chickens. I didn't know much about raising hens, but I did my research, built a coop, fenced the run, bought all the feeders, food, grit, accessories and so forth... Then I brought home two pullets, "Lucky" & "Jo". As they settled into their new life, they began to move the earth around their enclosure. Holes in the earth opened suddenly and mounds began to rise. I knew chickens would scratch and peck. I had no idea they would move and shape the earth. Then one day, THINGS started appearing in the chicken area; broken glass, bits of rusty metal, car parts and toys. So many toys. I began photographing and collecting these items. I call them Chicken Treasures and there seems to be no end to them. 


What it looked like the day we moved in

  2. Hi, This is Terry Manning and I am a rabid gardener and live In Suquamish, WA. Alexander is my son and he has told me about you and the chickens. All sounds very interesting and so I have signed up to receive your updates. The before and after pictures of your back yard look fabulous and I am sure it was very fun to do all of that. Look forward to the updates.
