THIS IS A POST I FORGOT TO POST!!!! These chickens are now half grown!!! Enjoy the Flashback! :)

We have been enjoying our Hens and Rooster from Dragonfly Farm, so much so that we thought we needed more chickens!  The kids and I were at Tractor Supply the other day and heard that familiar “peep peep” sound and had to investigate!

A quick call was made to The Farmer, to see if we could buy some more!  He agreed and we bought 3 Amerucana and 3 Reds.

When we got home Our Farmer quickly fetched our old rusty watering trough that was saved for such a time as this.  Our screened in back porch was quickly transformed into a brooder.  I quickly realized that since these chickens had not been sexed we might end up with all roosters!  So I called back to Tractor Supply a few days later and to my surprise they had just gotten in some Silver Laces Wyandotte chicks.  Another call to the Farmer, and then a dash to get more chicks.  Our Total now it 7 hens, 18 chicks, and the big daddy rooster Speck.

I think they grow faster than children! The kids have been enjoying looking at them every day and counting how many new feathers they have.  I will enjoy them one day when we have more eggs!!!
