I found yokes in both: I knew I pulled them for a reason... I thought they were slowing down because of age but neither were laying... glad I did it when I did.
I cooked the two I slaughtered tonight & am making chicken salad in the morning to share @ a family BBQ (after I go to goat class in the morning & finish grocery shopping... someday I will stop buying food from stores all together). I can't wait for our Farmer's Market to get going again... two more weeks I think.
I just have to say, yesterday was crazy: we had a roaring forest fire across the bottom road from us & I had to pack up my kids & get off the hill (everything is put out now & we are home)
but all I could think about was dropping the kids off in town & getting back to the house for the chickens... the ones still alive & the two in the cooler! I almost lost everything... super crazy day but a beautiful sunset full of gratitude at the end of it all... Enjoy the picks!
OH! And after putting the new pullets in the other night, I went out & got my first blue egg the next morning!
(The color isn't great in the pic; that egg was way bluer than it looks there...) Everyone is doing great!
