Last Thursday, Othniel, Head Farmer at Common Sense Farm, delivered a flock right to my door! 10 hens, 2 roosters, and a free hen duck - driven in a small trailer behind his pickup. His son was with him, and together we moved all the birds into the coop to spend the night in peace away from the Antlerborns. This morning they were let outside in the 37-degree sunshine and made themselves at home. It's good having some fresh blood, since one very hungry fox took out many young birds (and the neighbor's as well) and to have these hearty gals here who just started laying join the flock was a treat. It's also a little bit of insurance. No matter how frugal, or how cold, or how deep the snow: this winter there WILL BE OMELETS!
So, fellow Chicken Owners. I ask you this: How many birds do you keep, and do you keep roosters? Share your chicken story (or chicken dream!) and one comment will get mailed a copy of Chick Days (my chicken care book) and Storey's Chicken Health Handbook!
