A week in

Well, it's been a little more than a week since I've gotten the chickens, and they have given me 10 eggs. I think only two chickens lay eggs, so on average, I get two eggs a day. I have made a cake with these eggs, and I'm saving the rest to make french toast.

My First Egg

Yesterday the coop was finished, and we went into town to get the chickens. We got the chickens from Grandpa Roger's friend Verdean. After a few minutes of running around with large nets chasing chickens, we emerged victorious with four chickens. They are light brown, and seemed very happy to be in their new place. As of 11:30 today, they had already laid one egg, and seem to be even happier.

Almost Done

As of 9PM today, the chicken coop is about 85% finished. The roof just need to be finished, and a fence put up. Then we will go into town and pick up four chickens. I haven't decided what to name them yet, but I will decide tonight. Oh, and if you would like to see pictures of the progress on the coop, go to http://thechickenexperiment.Tumblr.com.

Technical Difficulties

Well, it appears as though I can't upload pictures from my iPhone to this blog, so I guess I will just use it for text. But, I'm also gonna set up a Tumblr for the pics. I'll keep you posted.

Clever/Funny Chicken Names

I haven't gotten my chickens yet, for the coop is still being repaired. But I'm already thinking of names for them, and here are a few which I thought were funny:
Dinner
Attila the Hen
General McNugget
BAMC-Bad Ass Mother Clucker
KFC
McChicken
Yolkahontas
Satan
Arnold Schwarzen-egger
