Our newest batch of chicks is now 5 weeks old. They’ll join the existing flock in two more weeks!
Heather and I have had chickens for the last 4 years. There have been some great moments – like getting 12 eggs one day from 12 hens, one of whom only laid a few dozen eggs per year. There have been some bad times – like losing a dozen hens overnight, killed by a raccoon. Through it all we persevere.
