Bumbee's New Job

We put the chickens in their new coop last night. It was quite the production. John and Bennie secured the premises against marauding raccoons. There was extended discussion as to the sleeping arrangements. One of the chickens had been pecked by the others so we thought it best to separate them. We tried to talk Bennie into bringing a sleeping bag over for the night and guard over the chickens. Tee Hee.
The next morning though all was well at the coop. We let the ladies out of the coop into the "day room" to scratch around. They seem to have taken well to their new abode.

Bumbee is very protective of her new chickens. First thing in the morning she ran down to the coop and has been standing guard all day. If someone approaches, especially a neighborhood dog, she barks furiously.
It's so important for dogs to have a job.

Love, Kelly


  1. what a cute watch doggie...Annie in brigham

  2. Your chicks make me want to get some! I would have to do a lot of convincing to the husband because he hate to eat eggs. Your pup is cute too!

  3. GREAT looking chooks Kelly....I'm envious of all those fresh eggs the girls will be producing for you....!!

    I grew up in the country & we always had chooks....Not really something you can do in the city though....I shall just admire yours from afar.... :o) !!

    Does Bumbee like cuddles....?? If so give him a big Aussie style hug from me & tell him I think he's doing a marvellous job....!!

    Cheers for now,
    Tamarah :o)
