The re-chickening

Yep, I am a soft touch. Yep, the kids pretty much walk all over me and get whatever they want. We all know this, so move along.

We are back in the chicken business. The kids were so excited when I let them know the Buff Orpingtons and Light Brahmas were back in stock at the farm store that I could not see making them wait until Saturday to pick up our newest feathered friends.



Since the last birds thrived (except for that whole ending thing...) I decided to go with only 4 birds this time. Six were fun, but the reality was that 6 mature 7 pound chickens were going to hard to accommodate in coop space. Four should work better when they are full grown.

But if neighbor dog gets these, then I guess we will shutter our backyard poultry operations.
