To awkward looking 2 week olds...
To these crazy white feathered things. Their feathers are not COMPLETELY in... but they are covered enough that the heat lamp is gone and the window is left open for air.
See that metal hanging contraption thing? that is a feeder my MIL put together. See the chicken standing in the food swinging? Silly chicken....who says they don't have personality??
I'm sure my egg layers appreciate that. Especially Heff the Rooster, since he now has on average 6 hens following him around WHEREVER he goes.
I'm seriously enjoying this chicken thing. I am going to look into the intricacies and policies on selling meat hens and organic eggs. I would love to get to the point where I have a sign at our driveway and/or sell my eggs at the local farmer's market.
Selling properly raised hens and eggs would be great. It would not only reduce my environmental footprint, but help the local city eat healthier by providing an alternative to the factory reared and hormone injected crap sold at the local market.
Just doing my part and having fun doing it.
