Pret'near all cleaned out and ready for some new occupants,
the henhouse is open and ready for business!
Just got to throw down some wood shavings and fresh straw and we're good to go!
I've been checking CraigsList for chooks the past few weeks, and found some just a few miles from here, just about the right age for us.
I don't want them too teeny, as I don't have the equipment for raising tiny chicks.
But, a few weeks old would be just about right.
It will be a long time comin' before we see any eggs, but that's OK.
I'd rather have young chicks that get used to us, than hens that have been laying for 6 months already.
I will update this afternoon, hopefully with pics of the little ones!
10 Buff Orpington chickies, scared silly!
About 6 weeks old, or so.
Farmer says if any turn out to be roosters, we can trade 'em in for hens.
Once again, I feel like a Farmgirl!
