... It's official our chicks have names. Drum roll please:
Whew, THAT was an exercise in creative thinking on my part and the kids!
I read through the entire subdivision rules and ordinances in the township and it appears that backyard birds are NOT prohibited SOoooo that means we need to get on building a type of chicken coop and run...
I've decided I really like the A-frame style coop, although I also found this Hen House Coop from a Green Chicken Coop in Bay City that I thought was SUPER cute as well. We'll go for the least expensive though, and build one ourselves.
