Follow our adventures as we raise a tiny flock of chickens in suburban Bexley, Ohio. Our chicken bloggers include Tami Taylor,a Welsummer, and Tyra, a Jersey Giant.

I think the strongest testimony for the no-big-deal nature of a couple of backyard chickens is that there's been nothing to post about for weeks. The chickens are out there just doing their thing. When it got really hot a few weeks ago, we put up the patio umbrella for them to have a little more shade. They've been enjoying scraps from the early summer produce haul (I highly recommend situating the coop near the house for more convenient scrap sharing). But, basically, they're just living the chicken high-life and sharing their eggs.
I'll try to think of something splashy to share soon.
