Anywho. I thought I would post the pictures of the chickens real quick that I took yesterday. It has been an exciting weekend! Our flock has been reduced from 22 to 13. Don't worry, as far as I know, everyone is alive and safe. We gave 9 chickens to a lady in my church to take to her sister's farm. Reasoning: we felt like we had just way too many, and if we want some of our hens to hatch out chicks next year, we have to have room to grow. We also had 5 to 9 roosters. Too many boys in the henhouse is not a good thing! A bunch of them were starting to fight pretty regularly and some of them had more attitude than they should. But we think that it didn't help that they were confined to such a small space, so we figured we would take care of things before it got dangerous. The chicks are still too small to actually hurt each other, so we figured it was a good time. As far as I know, they are going to a farm where they can free range over a large area of land with other chickens, and that should be fun. They will have plenty of space! And I'm pretty jealous that they can let their chickens range like that. ....someday!
So, here is the group yesterday.
So, all in all, we got rid of 1 golden laced cochin, a red pair, 3 partridge, little boy blue, and we threw in a couple of brown leghorn girls for a total of 9. (probably 6 roosters!!!)
And... I was wandering about the garden yesterday and wth? ... A watermelon!
Well, I better get ready, this took longer than expected! Also, we're about to hit 1000 views! YAAAY! Granted a lot of them are from spammer web sites, but it makes me feel cool that I've hit this high! :)
