Chicken Time!

Jared, Daphne and I headed out to the feed store on Saturday to get some new chickens. Yes, it's that time of the year again.

Every year Wilco gives away free meat chickens with each bag of feed that they sell. I ended up getting 10 chickens for free, which is the number of chickens I was planning on raising for the year. We end up eating about 1 chicken per month--we're not big chicken eaters around here.

I got 10 meat chickens, 5 chukar and another laying hen. They just happened to have the same breed of hen that I had lost last year. She was my favorite hen, and I am happy to replace her.

I'm hoping to take some photos soon to post. They are already at least twice as big as they were when I got them.
