This summer we received three small chickens and I got all excited about all the eggs we would get. I imagined going out in the mornings and collecting fresh eggs to make breakfast of. But no eggs came. We waited and waited. Soon it turned out that one of them was a rooster. Great! I thought, then we can get new chickens. Then another one turned into a rooster.
Every morning they jump out of the cage we've built them and walk around all day while we're at work. Most times they have stayed in our garden all day, but lately it seems like they have started paying our neighbours a visit now and then. They are spreading joy around them every day. Both young and old like to walk by and say hello to our hens when they're standing by the side of the road.
But when darkness falls they jump into their cage again after they knock on our door to say it's time to lock up after them.
