I'm getting positive reports out of San Diego about my sister's backyard chicken adventure.
This real Urban Farmgirl now has a pen, two Rhode Island Reds and is collecting two eggs a day.
Gypsy started laying right away, but Molly needed a little encouragement. Turns out Molly likes to jam while laying, so the Urban Farmgirl put a radio in the coop.
What a nice pen. I think this cost about $200, including delivery.
Love this quote: "I only hear them when they want me to know an eggs coming...my chickens are so thoughtful!"
Can't wait to visit and get some fresh eggs, which the neighbors are already enjoying.
Looks like this Urban Farmgirl may have started a neighborhood trend...because the neighbors are impressed so far at how low maintenance the chickens are, how quiet they are and how good the eggs taste.
