We talked a lot about chickens last week, but only in the context of meat. How about chickens for eggs? You know that I sighed a bit over this house tour; I am quite envious of this big back yard and snug little chicken coop. Think of all the eggs Jora and Bryan must be getting from their chicken flock.
Jora says that the vegetable garden and this chicken coop are their proudest DIYs in their beautiful home. We just love that this lovely, quite stunning home has a chicken coop out back!
