Baker's Dozen

Here's my first dozen and I already have a buyer for them. My mom asks when we can use some for cooking. I told her theses are for selling not eating.

What's wrong?

Tom has been laying eggs for a week now, but her sister Moe hasn't started yet. Maybe she is waiting for Easter. I hope she starts laying soon.

I took Moe out for some exercise the other day. Let her wander around the backyard. Then I tried to catch her and she took off. She flew up into one of the small trees and landed on a branch. Then I was able to get a hold of her.

I can't believe how much water chickens drink. I have to fill their water can two times and day.

Way to go Tom

Another day, another egg. Today while I was watching, Tom laid this egg.
It was so neat. I named her Tom because I like to watch Tom and Jerry in the afternoons.

The Chickens

This is the chicken house. My dad, grandpa and I built it. My brothers helped too.

Here's some of the chickens.
