OK, so I have to start from scratch. Bobcats have totally wiped me out. Beefed up the pens, coops and added electric wire. Hopefully this should do it. I have asked around for started pullets and now chicks are pouring in. My friends have given me more 1 to 3 week old babies than I can possibly use and that is not counting the chicks I bought. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for their generosity but 60 babies? Mostly barnyard mixes. And me? I can't say no to a gift. Besides who can refuse the tiny cheepy peeps? It will now be a matter of raising them, sexing them, selling or gifting the surplus ones. We don't eat our chickens. It is a good thing I love my chicks and have the good fortune to live in the country and have lots of room. So, I wish for started pullets and get a slew of fuzzy babies.
