I just looked in the freezer, we have 9 whole chickens and about 4 chickens cut up in packs, you know, some thighs, some legs, and breast. You don't always want to have a whole chicken to eat.
I cleaned out the coop this morning and thought that I would show you the nest boxes that my sweetie (TJ) made. He did this last fall when we took down the coop that I made (Very strudy as it had lots and lots of nails!) and made the old goat pen into a larger chicken pen.
Here's one of the girls getting ready to lay us an egg. They sure do make a loud noise when done.
Want to know what I really love about the new nest boxes? TJ made it so that you don't have to go inside the coop to collect eggs. He made is so that you can open a door on the outside of all the boxes and so then all you have to do is collect. Very nice not having to get your shoes all poopied up. (and just FYI, chicken poop stinks and is really hard to get off your shoes. Very sticky.)
