The other day a lady came to the house to pick up something I had advertised on Freecycle and when she stepped out of her car all the chickens came running over ... she looked panicked, I told they were friendly, just looking for treats!
I frequently open the door to go out and they will be on the porch waiting for bread!!
The kids really enjoy them, and I too enjoy having them around. We are now getting an average of six eggs per day in a variety of sizes and colors (tan, dark brown, pink, blue, green, and speckled). It is much like Easter each day as only a couple lay in the coop, a couple lay in various places in the shed and someone is now laying in the bushes behind the house!

A magical day to you!
