Spring!!

Lots of excitement here on the homestead…got our first chickens!!

Tried for a nice mix of meat, dual- purpose and layers.

Thirty all together.  I am interested to see which breeds do the best here.  I’d like a balance between production and free-range.

The brooder is in the shed corner where the black plastic is wrapped for extra insulation.  Eventually there will be outdoor pens off the right side.

I also read about using double fencing for deer protection and running chickens in it!

For now they are snug with their heat lamp.

Can’t wait until they are big enough to get outside!
Names,of course, to follow!
