I got 20 chicks the first weekend of May and they are the most fun and full of life little creatures ever!!
Unfortunately Dot and Gertie have done a little flock management and I am down to 16 chicks but I have made sure to dog proof their cage now!
It will take several months for these girls to grow up and mature in laying hens.
As for my current ten laying hens, I get about 8 eggs a day so I have lots of fresh eggs around!
Henny Penny has been laying on these eggs for about 3 days and she is not going to budge so I guess I will have a few more chicks in about 18 days.
I just love my chickens!
