Introducing... Laverne & Shirley!

Last Saturday we made the trek up to Lompoc to finally pick out our chickens and bring them home.
Dare 2 Dream Farms was such a cool find! (thanks to Josh who did all the research)

This is the kind of farm you would want to move to. It's tucked away in the hills of Lompoc and when you pull up there are random roosters, chickens & ducks just roaming around. You can't get any more free range than that!

The owners were a really young couple, obviously living out their dreams of running a farm. They were very educated and were able to help us pick out the perfect chickens that suited our needs.

Now I'm not going to lie... since there were hundreds of chickens, the smell was on the 'poopy' side. Probably because chickens poop as though it were going out of style! They really do, it's pretty funny! (and gross...)

So we loaded up our Rhode Island Red & Easter Egger into a cat carrier (yes, a cat carrier). They were so quiet on the ride home that I forgot we had them back there!
Sofia on the other hand was anything but quiet so we were fully aware she was in the car.... yup, there may have been a tantrum or FIVE on that ride home.

Nevertheless, the chickens are here - and adapting to their coop. By this weekend they'll be roaming the yard.
