The chickens

Probably the last post about the chickens for awhile. My blog is too heavy on the chicken posts and I am growing and brewing things too so I should do more of those posts.

The meat birds are all growing huge but they are finally outside partially. They have been on the raised bed in the baby gate several days but now it’s raining and cold and I can’t put them back out again. They all eat worms, kale and some weeds so I am pretty impressed with them. We got our last two chicks for the year, Annie the Ancona and Red Crystal the Speckled Sussex. I meant to get a Cuckoo Maran because I wanted the dark brown eggs but I made a mistake and got an Ancona instead. She is too cute and we really like her even if she will lay white eggs.
