Henry Penry

I'm going to tell you about my chickens.  Yes, I said chickens.  I have been wanting chickens for some time, ok, years and years.  I had them when I was a kid and my grandparents had them.  I just loved having chickens.  And I still love having chickens.
On with the story...
Back in April I took my youngest child to Tractor Supply just to buy chicks.  He picked them out and we brought them home.  He smiled as if it were Christmas.  LOL
There is a post here that talks about Lazy Me and in that post, you can see our chicken palace.  And here is some pictures of our chicks and chickens.

Henry started out as Henny.  Yes, just like the childrens story, Henny Penny.  I went out the other day only to go right back inside and inform the family that Henny Penny is actually a Henry Penry.  So now we have a Henry and he started crowing about 3 days after I made the announcement.

Since the chicken palace is all set in place and we have built a little roof over the laying boxes, I will get some updated pictures just as soon as possible.
