Our latest endeavor is raising chicks! We've talked about it for several years and always had some excuse not to move forward with this. Well this year we actually are doing it. The girls are loving it!
We started with 6 hens (hopefully)! 2 Dominiques, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 1 White Brahma and 1 Blue Laced Red Wyandotte. The blue lace was the smallest and seemed to be getting picked on by the others so my mom went back to get another one and they were all out. But she did bring me another Brahma and 1 Wellsummer. She has chipmunk markings!
So now we have 8 chicks currently residing in a kennel in the garden shed. Hubby has been working on building their coop and is about half done. Looking good I might add!
I'll keep you posted on how we fair traveling down this new road for us.
