It all started when Lily was 1 and I had the sudden urge to get backyard chickens. My parents were about to replace their coop with a new one and offered to give us theirs. It was the perfect opportunity.

Rather than chatting with my husband first, I decided to “surprise” him with the “news” that we were getting chickens. (It’s easier to ask for forgiveness later, right?)
My parents and I schemed for a couple weeks. They were able to pick up three hens for us and bring them down, along with their old coop.
