Chicks, Fences, and Fun
We got 25 new chicks- Buff Orpingtons, Black Austalorps, red stars, Rhode Island Reds, and a couple Blue-Laced Red Wyandottes. We also thinned out out older birds- and sold 17 of them to a couple families in search of yard birds and pet.
This winter has been a series of warm and cold days. One day the kids were running around with no jackets- zooming down the pasture in a big Tonka truck....
And the next day- snow!
On the warm days we worked on fencing in the chickens. We kept losing birds to a fox, and we are adding about 300 strawberry plants this year and didn't want the chickens to eat them all!
Now the chickens are enclosed, seeds are started inside- and garden time is right around the corner!
