Looks like we may get some more chickens this very soon. I was down buying rabbit feed the other day at the local feed store and they had some week old Rhode Island Reds-mostly hens. It has been some months since we had chickens around here. I need to fix the doors to the hen yard/coop, but other than that, I think we're ready for them again.
Having your own supply of eggs and the occasional bird for the pot is worth (at least for me, maybe not for the child with the chores) the trouble they are.
On that note, we haven't planted yet on the portion of our garden where the chicken tractor was rotated. Probably this week (we are a little late in some of our planting). Can't wait to see how it goes (or grows).
Surprisingly some of the small apple trees we inherited are giving fruit this year. Our area is good for peaches but not apples, so we will see how this goes.
That's all for now. Back to work.
