It has been around 6 months since my last post on here, and my, has it changed, lol! I was expecting the old blue homepage when I finally dusted off this account and logged on. When was the format changed? Anywho, the Eastin flock had quite a tough winter. We started off 2011 with a brand new group of 30 chickies after the rest of our very first flock had all died off. After 3 power outages that resulted with frozen waters and no heat, 2 outbreaks of cocci, a murderous raccoon, and a visit from the neighborhood dogs, we lost 12 birds. So, over the past week, I have collected a fancypants new brooder and 20 little babies to account for our winter losses. I am also planning on selling hatching eggs again this summer- finally! So, how has everyone else been?
