Who has chickens? Who is getting chickens? We’ve all seen the price of eggs.
We bought some chicks back in August and now have an abundance of eggs. Nine hens and a rooster. All are different breeds (no racists in our flock, lol). We’ve kept them locked up due to bird flu. I really like free ranging, but it’s not safe right now. Luckily, the coop is a converted grain bin, so plenty of room. We have enough eggs to share. It’s lovely.
Today, I heard peeping at the feed store, so we have four baby chicks in a brooder to add to our flock. The only slightly scary part was that we had to provide our name and address on a roster in case of an outbreak. We’re hoping if we keep them locked up, and no one shows symptoms, they’ll be spared, should an outbreak occur.
Here are the new babies.
