I had to go to Tractor Supply this morning to get some chicken food. I was bummed to see that the bags went up $1.oo. I now pay $14.19 a bag. I will be happy when they can get out more and graze in the yard. That will make the food last a little bit longer.
They had big basins of new baby chicks. The kids and I oooed and ahhhed at them. They were so tiny and cute. Makes me wish we could get some more. I have heard that it can be difficult to join new birds to an existing flock so I think I will wait till next year and then get a new batch.
I haven't had any more problems with the hens. They seem to be doing really well and enjoying the warmer temperatures.
