We have chickens

Mike made a lovely chalet du poulet yesterday and this morning we got a hen and a rooster. Ill post photos later.

The coop is open on two sides and we cant get the chickens interested in it. They love the patch of bamboo right behind their coop. The rooster hopped into the chalet for a few minutes and their food and water are next to it so hopefully theyll figure out that they need to go back there for safe and sound sleeping tonight. Also, I dont want to go tromping through the bamboo searching for eggs and I dont want hidden eggs to become surprise chicks. (Well, actually I do, but it wouldnt be very practical right now to have a bunch of chicks. It would be fun though.)
