A couple of weeks ago we bought some baby chicks. Since we already have a hen house established in our barn, we thought, “Why not”? We bought two each of the following:
Rhode Island Red
Barred Plymouth Rock
I’ve heard that once you eat your own eggs you cannot go back to the store bought. Apparently the yolks stand straight up and are a rich orange color. I’m excited to go get my eggs from my chickens every day. In another 4-6 months they should be producing.
The chicks are already a bit bigger as we’ve moved them into a big crate (they were flying out of their home here) and now my husband is building them a much larger temporary home out of some pallets and wood til we move them to the barn in a few weeks.
