Spring chicks

We just got our new chicks since the temp has been so warm. We lost all of our chickens last fall by way of raccoon. We had gotten used to fresh eggs every morning, and it was hard losing what had become family pets.

So, these little girls by fall should be huge and thinking about laying. We have secured the coop and hopefully they will be out of harms way.


  1. ooh. i want to go get some new chicks! our flock was recently destroyed by a fox in the neighborhood. now we've decided to put the roost in with the goats. that should do the trick.

    now to find some chicks.

  2. That's a great idea! We need some goats!
