Breaking news!

I don't often talk about my personal life but today you are going to get a glimpse into life at the Becker's.  We have 6 chickens that the kids talked me into getting while Bert was training for his new Apple job in California.  He told me before he left not to buy any real estate but he never said not to get any new animals.  So we got 6 chickens at Tractor Supply and Kaylee raised them in her condo till they were old enough to be outside and Cody got a coop built.  Well fast forward to today, Cody let the girls out this morning and saw an egg with a very thin shell in the middle of the coop.  His favorite chicken, Ava, was not running around with the rest of them so Cody put more straw in the coop and put her in there too.  When he went out to check on her she was under the coop singing the chicken laying song so he scooped her up and put her back in the coop and viola, a beautiful brown egg.  So that is 2 eggs in one day!   It's a banner day at the Becker farm.  And no, not the crazy farm either.
