Right now, I have these:
Meet Lystra, Isiri, and Unami!
Cute and fluffy! (and not HALF so loud as the ducks were last year, nor half as stinky as Allen's 50 chickies are... *whew*)
Allen has agreed to help me (which really translates to "make while I stand nearby observing") make a chicken coop, and I already have a pen that Maggie inherited for Oliver (but it was too small).
