Farewell chickens :(

We have to get rid of our chickens!!! 
(just imagine there are lots of crying, sad, teary eyed emojis here)

Apparently they aren't allowed in our association (boo!).

The kids (and us adults) were really bummed when we heard that we would have to get rid of them. 
I never knew I would be so attached to some chickens (well and their eggs). 
One of our kids cried when we told them the news. A lot.
One asked a million questions. Maybe more. 
One had a lot of ideas of how we could keep them. Some were as follows.
"We just need to train them not to bock. Then they won't know we have them."
"We need to move to a farm where there are no rules and you can as many animals as you want."
I suggested that each kid pick their favorite meal and we could use their chicken for it.
They didn't go for that.

We sure are going to miss you little chickies.

and we are really really going to miss your tasty eggs.

That is such a shame. We grow so attached to our animals. I would love to have chickens, but they aren't allowed in the city.
