A flock a brood and a clutch!

It’s been a steep and fun learning curve over the past 2 1/2 years. One thing that we haven’t tired of, and are still learning about, is our chickens. We started with three and now have around 14…. having lost several along the way. We don’t bred them to eat but they are the best recyclers, eating just about anything and they do supply us with the most yummy eggs. They all have names, mostly provided by our daughters, and include Misty, Trisha, Pecket, Luna, Little Red and of course John the Rooster…to name just a few.

It’s still a very special event when a new clutch of chicks is born. Recently we had four of our hens brood at the same time and you can see the result in this little video. I’m not sure there is anything cuter than a new born chick! Enjoy!
