So here we are again. Let's go back a couple of years. The first thing we did to begin our self-reliance was get day-old chicks. We ordered 25 chicks. I chose Buff Orpingtons, Black Austrolorps, and a few Americuanas. Let me tell you 25 is too many!!!
I raised them anyway. Then gave them away, all but 6 hens. I've learned my lesson. Next time I'll just get the chicks at the feed store : ).
This catching up is going to take a while folks because I'm a seek and peck typer. I'll post again soon.
