Nobody Here But Us Chickens…

Who are we? Here at the Accidental Homesteader, we have two humans, three cats, and eight chickens.  I’m Kate. There is the husband. We have Cleopatra, an old bitch of a cat. She’s about 11 or so. She just lost her buddy Agamemnon two weeks ago, and is still angry with us. He was 16 or so. But in December, knowing how old Agamemnon was, we adopted a new kitten, Aristaeus. He was 3 months in December, so still a kitten. He loved Agamemnon, and played with him every day. So last week, we got him his own kitten, Demeter. She’s all of 3 months old.

Then there are the chickens. We have two flocks of four birds each.  They live in their coop.
