    Hey everyone I got back from the Mountain School on Friday for spring break. Half my flock is gone because of fox attacks and other accidents that my parents couldn't prevent. The movable coop and run setup seems to be working alright as long as people are properly trained in how to move it and keep birds in it. At the Mountain school I got plenty of chickens they have a mixed flock of 100 hens and roosters. I also helped with lambing and have seen 6 ewes give birth and helped (dried lambs off + dipped cords) 4 of them. I am having a great time academically, socially , and I am getting my farming fix to. Today I visited Will Marrow and got two more Welsummer pullets and one black ameraucana pullet. I also got my fist Welsummer pullet egg from an older pullet. I love this girls little egg and her personality is great to. Hope everyone is doing well. I am going back sunday of next week.

    thanks,
    Henry
