As you can see, we continue working on the chicken coop. The roof is a new addition, and yesterday my husband has been fixing a "nest" for them instead of the cardboard box in which they have been sleeping until now.
From our observations, at least one of our birds, contrary to what we were promised, is a rooster. Now we're wondering what to do because we really hadn't planned on keeping a rooster, both because we don't want problems with the neighbours and because we aren't interested in fertilized eggs. On the other hand, the chicken which is presumably a rooster is the cutest and friendliest of the lot, so we're in a dilemma.
Near our home, there is a beautiful narrow road where we often go for nature hikes. On our last such walk, we discovered a lot of tomatoes growing by the roadside. Since it didn't look as though they belong to anyone, we helped ourselves and came home with a bag of naturally grown tomatoes. They are very delicious and their taste is much more concentrated than that of store-bought tomatoes. Additionally, we had a wonderful time as a family picking them, and hopefully will return later on for the ones that aren't ripe yet right now.
Hope you are all having a lovely summer!
