News Update

The chickens are growing. Only one rooster. The hens are getting fat. I switched them over to layer feed, which they do not seem to love, so I put the chick starter out during the day for them to snack on. The are scratching up the run for bugs and grass shoots. I mowed the front yard and caught the clippings. I dumped the clippings into the run and the chickens are quite please with that.

Names so far:

Priscilla - the baby of the bunch
Nine-Ten - She's big fat hen
Red Rooster - probably not his final name

How about for the Rooster, you call him "Get in my belly".

I was thinking "Fried" myself. Easier to say and remember.
