What's Clickin' Chicken?

Remember those sweet little chicks we got during the spring?
Well they grew up to be huge meanie hens. All hens. We thought we'd end up with at least one male in the lot, probably two, but oh no...all gals.
Our ladies were getting a little stressed with overcrowding, so we gave three away last week and ahhhhh.... so much better. No more crazy fighting over food (even pumpkin seeds!) Our coop is peaceful once again.
Except for the fact that they are laying in the hay storage instead of any of the THREE fancy nesting boxes they have. Ah well.
