On Sunday, Daniel and I drove to the outer Richmond to visit some chickens.
Daniel's former roommate Morgan and his girlfriend Joanna have decided to go into chicken husbandry, as it turns out that their apartment is in fact zoned for up to four (!) chickens. Last weekend they drove out to Marin and picked out five chickies (just to be safe) and now they are raising them in a little box in their apartment.
They have two Araucaunas, two Speckled Sussexes, and one Bantam.
The bantam was my favorite, probably because she's the smallest and looks the most like the prototypical Easter chick. Her name is Shark. She was the speediest and managed to eat all three of the worms that Morgan dropped into the cage.
I believe the chick to the left is Judy Dench. The one to the right is Nately.
This is the far more stately and elaborate abode they will be moving into once they have matured a bit. Morgan has been building it in the garage, but soon they'll move it to their backyard.
I have to admit, I am a little jealous.
