Jersey Giants in the Coop

Old bedding composted, coop hosed out and whitewashed with diatomaceous earth slurry.  The Jersey Giant chicks are in with their nightlight (heat lamp) and all snug.  I am leaving the coop closed up for a couple of days to give them time to adjust before turning them loose in the run.

Old Girls Retired

Moved on to better pastures. Time to clean everything and move the Jersey chickens outside.

Joizy Chicks are here

The next crop of chicks has arrived from My Pet Chicken.  Six Jersey Giants who are vaccinated and supposedly all female.  The current crop of murder birds, I mean Rhode Island Reds, will have to be rotated out over the next month or so.  Since the new birds are from Jersey, they may arrange for the old ones to have an "accident," probably involving dumplings.
