We have begun our endeavor into raising chickens. Our little chickadees arrived a week and a half ago. At 7:30 in the morning we received a phone call from our local post office that a little box of peeping chicks had arrived. Auggie and I rushed out to meet our beautiful new additions. They are quite cute and we have been enjoying them thoroughly. We spoil them rotten. Digging up worms and dandelions daily. They have already grown now and are trying to fly around.
Tucker and his father have been working diligently on building a nice coop for them. We have had volunteers come weekly to help in the construction and we are nearly finished. Now we just need to add a door and nesting boxes. We will begin working on the run this upcoming week.
We plan on adding more Guineas to the fleet as well. 15 little Keets are due to arrive in June. Hopefully we will be able to keep our newest members happy, healthy and safe from predators 🙂
