Well, it’s about time I introduced you to the ladies of the yard! This was our fourth summer sharing our city lot with chickens. It’s been an awkward dance, for sure, and a lot more work than we anticipated. That work comes mostly in the form of experimenting with trying to maximize our smaller space by combining the chicken coop with a greenhouse, or giving the chickens green space to forage while keeping a large vegetable patch. We couldn’t imagine a homesteading life without them, though. From their fluffy butts, to their goofy stares, daily songs, and incredibly awkward running, they bring a lot of liveliness and joy to our home, not to mention the delicious eggs AND soil-boosting poop!
