Every day the young chicks are larger and more vigorous. Our chicken barn is too small for them to all crowd onto the top roost, which is of course the most desirable, so there is a lot of jockeying for position.
I've sold eight of the 25 chicks. I've still got another six or seven to go, so I'll end up with the dozen I want. Guess it's time to put up a sign at the local feed store.
It's been a week of fixing up and prepping for cold weather and winter. It might be time to invest in some new winter outdoor gear as the temperatures drop. We built a pump house this week, and closed in the old chicken door hatch of the old henhouse, which is moving over to becoming a studio. It's very cosy, now that I've cleaned it out and put in a little space heater. Still has a lot of chicken energy in there, with the silent echo of soft clucking sounds and peaceful chicken sleep whenever you enter the space.
