7. Just added to my flock last week

We run an old-hen home here. I let my hens age and live out the rest of their lives after their egg producing years. Out of my flock of 9, about 5 regularly produce. One additional one sporadically produces eggs.

I ordered 8 more babies that arrived a week ago via USPS and picked up two more at the local feed store the same morning.

The hatchery didn’t have any black Australorp in last weeks batch so those are the two that I picked up. The others are speckled Sussex, green eggers and olive eggers.

10 little messy peeps. Adorable.
