The Girls

This has got me thinking that maybe we should keep chickens.
These hens are living a fine life out here in suburbia, in a darling little pre-fab henhouse/enclosed chicken yard at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Their house is a durable plastic mod igloo, with the shade-covered run extending from the back. Food and water dishes are labeled "grub" and "glug", and hang on the side, within easy reach. At night, the hens are secure inside their funky coop, and they lay their eggs in there, too. The whole thing can be moved all over the yard, so the chickens can peck the lawn free of grubs. If you think you might want one, too, just go to your local poultry store and ask for an "Omlet."
