Cory and Ryan have four chickens: Blondie (a Cochin), Nugget (also a Cochin), Raki (a Columbian), and Mountain (a mystery breed). There are a ridiculous amount of chicken breeds out there.
Cory's dad helped them build a gorgeous deck and an impressive coop for their feathered friends:
Ryan and I followed Blondie into the coop...

That's right, chickens like yogurt. And don't worry, Blondie ended up joining in:
And after all that yogurt, it was time to snack on an orange:

|My loot: fresh eggs and peppers from the garden.|
Raki lays big dark eggs, Mountain lays big light eggs, and Nugget lays little light eggs.
Oh, and here's the best part: when Cory and Ryan go on their honeymoon next month, I get to cat sit AND chicken sit! Stay tuned for more posts on my egg-gathering adventures. Wisconsin rules.
