New Chicks!

Chickens are addictive! So many breeds, so little coop space!

We must work on being able to allow them to free range; if only Henry, the
little farm dog, would allow it!

These four are 2 Welsummers and 2 Barnevelders. We were supposed to have
two Delawares, but the seller's brother accidently took those yesterday :(

I have to admit, these Barnevelders are the prettiest chicks I've ever seen.

We will, hopefully, get a few of those later in July when her next eggs hatch.

In the meantime, you if you have any Dominique or Delaware chicks for sale, let me know.



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."
