Got early morning call from Post office saying my gals (and perhaps one boy) had arrived. Once I got everyone settled down, one chick did pass away but the others are all jumping around. Dark Cornish, EE, Silver Laced, New Hampshires, Red & Black stars as well as Black Aussies. I am selling my original folk so these gals can take over the job of keeping the yard weed free and chicken poop covered. I have some awesome coop plans that I have to save up to build so the old coop will become a sort of green house. I decided also to raise the amount I keep from seven to nine. Haven't a clue as to what I'll do with all the extra eggs. Hopefully when the goat has its first baby the milk will induce more cooking. I got the dark cornish to replace my delawares whom weren't available for the dates I picked. Even though they may not lay through the winter, they will be harder to see for the amount of juvenile red tailed hawks we have buzzing around.
