Over the past 3 months I've been SO busy with school (there's a lot more than last year!). But now that it's finally Christmas break, I thought it was about time I do another blog post :)
Last spring we got only 7 new chicks because we knew we were already getting a TON of eggs from the ones we had. Unfortunately, 2 of the chicks died:(, one ended up being a rooster, and now that it is winter we aren't getting any eggs. We're going to get a lot of new chicks this spring!
|Our younger, egg laying hens (and Chuck) live in the chicken|
shed next to the back yard.
|Right now, there are 12 chickens in the shed and there are 7 different breeds.|
|Pretty eggs ;)|
|Yep, Chuck is still alive at almost 7 years old!|
|Not a chicken.|
|Down in the barn, we keep the older hens who|
rarely lay eggs. Also down there is our new rooster
Tup who would fight with Chuck if he was in the shed.
|Isn't he handsome??|
(maybe sometime in the future I'll show him in the fair!)
