New Chicks on the Block

Box of fluff

We welcomed, though temporarily for some, 100 new Barred Silver cockerels to the farm today! The little balls of fluff arrived safely from Reich Poultry in Pennsylvania. Fifty of the little guys will head off to a new home tomorrow while another 40 will be raised by Patty and I for 3 or 4 weeks before going to A Wrinkle in Thyme Farm. The last 10 are ours. One lucky boy will become our rooster while the others, well, they are raised for meat!

Freedom from the box!




The 5 week old layer pullets will be going out this afternoon in the chicken tractor to free range while they finish growing. They had to check out what was going on in the next brooder!

What is all that racket?
