Introducing My Favorite Girls and Mr. Rooster

 About three years ago, I purchased some hens so we could enjoy fresh eggs. Who knew they would be so much fun? We enjoy watching them run across the yard chasing bugs and scratching the dirt for other tasty treats .  I have 46 hens and 1 rooster.  My girls provide us with beautiful and delicious fresh eggs.  I sell my extra eggs to friends, co-workers, or our friend at our local feed store.  Last week while we were in Canton, we purchased a refurbished laying box and 10 pullets from Norman Monk of Fowl Play Game Bird Farm of Ivanhoe, Texas (near Bonham). 

Mr. Rooster is in the middle amongst his ladies!

Our reward - beautiful eggs in a rainbow of colors!


  1. Gorgeous birds! I miss having chickens - even if they DID dig up my garden! I love this post!

  2. I hope you find a place in the country in 2012 so you can have your own hens - again!
