what I haven't posted about lately
We've been raising chicks, again. We got them about three weeks ago, and they have been inhabiting the cook shed, but they were getting too big, and the poultry dust was just settling all over everything, so...
Today The Hermit revived our old chicken tractor and moved the brood out there. They seemed to enjoy the space, and grass. I even brought them out a treat of maggots I found in my kitchen compost bin. Yuck, I know.
I can't even tell you what all the breeds are. We had had a few beers before The Hermit got the bright idea of logging on to Murray McMurray and ordering. We do have some funky Polish chicks that are starting to get their headdresses. All girls, I'm tired of roosters for now. We have one that won't shut up.
They're enjoying their new digs. And I'm enjoying the few extra square feet of space and lack of poultry dust in my kitchen.
