With a little to much time on our hands the wife and I decided to do a bit of urban farming and raise some chickens. So a couple of weeks ago we bought four chicks. It is quite difficult to get them as it seems a lot of other people decided it was a good time to raise chickens as well. F925D40F-0DFC-4AA0-A2F2-373E29C0A506.jpeg

The chicks needed a house so we are building a coop. It turned out to be a bigger project than anticipated.

Eventually, they'll make both a good chicken noodle soup and some crispy fried chicken too. :thumbsup:

Pops, what do you do for your chickens when the temps get really high? I worry that when we get into July and August that we will have problems.
