Project 365 - Your Daily Farm Photo
Our chicken yard hasn't been so busy lately.
After a week-long issue with a fox, and more recently some spilled rat bait, I am down to 4 laying hens. In a last minute struggle to find local chicks to bring my coop back, I only found bantam chicks. Not really the large eggs I was hoping for!
I decided to take the plunge and order chicks. I am so nervous about how they will do along their journey. My fingers are crossed though, and I hope to have a late season chick update to share in about a week.
Until then here is one of my favorite Barred Rocks.
