That age old question. Here on The Compound the answer is...the chicken. My first batch of chickens came from Bishop's Cove after replying to an ad in the Buy and Sell. The man who sold them to me also tried to guilt me into adopting a goat but that's another story. They came home in a deep fryer box and the grandson of the man hid behind the skidoo bawling because the baby chickens were leaving.
So the chickens arrived and I waited and waited and waited for them to grow up. Turns out I had four roosters and seven hens. Every day I would check the coop...no eggs. But finally there were two little green eggs! I ran up to the house to show Sam like a little kid would. And that's how it began.
