Diary of a chicken farmer: part 1.

First of all, big congrats to Cory and Ryan on their wedding!

Picture perfect, eh?
While my friends are honeymooning in Indonesia, I'm taking care of their animals and plants. I assured them that their cat and chickens would be in great hands, but I made no guarantees about the plants (I've been watering them every few days, but this isn't my area of expertise).

Caring for Cory and Ryan's pets goes as follows:

Step 1, check on Leisha.
A lovely Persian, indeed.
Step 2, gather the eggs.
Raki's present: a large brown egg.
Step 3, let the chickens out.
Raki and Nugget are best buds.
Step 4, tend to them. This means water, feed, and of course, treats:

Step 5, get the chickens back into the coop. This involves shooing them with a broom and a rake.
Doing my best farmer pose.
Overall, it's a pretty fun gig. The fresh eggs and garden veggies are a nice perk, too!
