Well, I like eggs. I wanted some eggs and the best place I know to get eggs is in a chicken. So, I did my homework, and BYC was a great place for me to find my inner chicken. Long story short, this will be a multi entry "blog" on my chicken raising/lifestyle change. I hope you enjoy following it as much as I will living it. ..... Day 14, research done and it's time to get chicks. RK with the fam and I hope the half dozen we got from the straight run side aren't all Roos!!!! Who woulda known ? I missed that part on chick selection... Anyway, we leave the store with chicks, starter feed, feeder, and waterer, hmmm am I forgetting something. Oh yeah, heat bulbs, heat lamps, cedar shavings, JK pine. Ok, off we go to set up shop... How about that toy storage container in the back yard that is going to the dump, what a great idea. So we repurposed that with some lights and have a happy brooder so far. Only lost one chick, my daughter picked out all the smallest pullets, and one runt didn't quite have the stamina. Poor Eddy, RIP. We buried him next to the dog and the two cats that preceded him in death. Yes we have a pet cemetery at this point. So here's some pics and feel free to comment at will. Ill be updating this post weekly on Sunday's. Hope you enjoy following our journey to Eggdom !!! Next up... Clearing the coop plot.
