Backyard Chicken Coop and Pond

Playhouse and Pond

After a bout of empty-nest syndrome when their children went off to college, the homeowners decided to \"fill their nest with chickens,\" turning an unused playhouse into a coop and adopting 10 chicks. The owners enjoy time spent in this picturesque backyard, laughing at the antics of their flock and petting the ones that like to sit on their laps.
