La Chicken Update


Arg. I was all set to head down to the farm store today to pick up my little chicks, but...they don't get a big shipment in until next Wednesday. So I will wait. Impatiently. And it will give me time to properly set up the chick enclosure (or, as we're calling it, The Chickery) which is a good thing.

    Don't count your chickens before they are delivered. UB

  3. Hmm. right. I think, too, they shouldn't be counted until they reach middle age. Young chicks are prone to a variety of illnesses, one of my favorities is called pasty butt. I guess it's not unusual to lose a few in the process. Seeing as I'm only going to have three, a 66% mortaility rate would be a big bummer.

  4. Sonja - It's so great to find your blog on here as well! My mom has chickens and there is nothing better than fresh eggs. And the chickens are pretty fun, too!
