Cock-a-doodle-doo!! Bringing Home Happy Chickens in Italy

the ring leader

Just over 2 weeks ago Jason brought our 12 chick-a-dees home - from where else but the hardware store! His first attempt to pick up the chicken was on a cold rainy day - he arrived with an eager smile. "Ciao Massi, I'm here from my chickens."

-"Ahh yes, well it is such an ugly day & the chickens are very happy in my coop here."
-"Their house is ready & I've got them food."
-"Well you see they don't like the rain & it is best to take them to their new home on a nice sunny day. You want happy chickens"

Jason reluctantly left without the chickens, waiting for the rain to let up.
(It poured for another 3 days)
Finally on a gorgeous sunny spring day the chickens arrived safe & sound, happy as can be!
Now we've got a full coop of 12 birds! In a slip-up in translation, Jason thought he ordered 7 hens almost ready to lay eggs & 5 baby chicks still yellow.
But he really ordered roosters instead of the 5 young chicks! Thankfully they haven't learned how to cock-a-doodle at 5am yet - that's when they become soup!

Early each morning, I throw on my boots & run down to the coop checking for eggs, but they are still too young - not to mention a bit more stupid than we expected. But they are hysterical & we're having a blast with them!just as proud as can be, his chickens are home
