Yesterday afternoon , Dh went to pick-up this new hen. She's a partridge rock , she has beautiful coloring and is about 3 months old. On Friday we'll be picking up 5 more pullets to complete our young flock. I plan to sell a few eggs this year , hopefully enough to pay for feeding all the chickens.
The roosters are doing well , I haven't heard Chief Little Roo crow yet but Geronimo has been crowing everyday , he crows in the afternoon too (LOL). They're finally coming up to me as I get their feed ready , before they would stay a few feet away watching and wouldn't eat until I started back to the house. They haven't shown any signs of aggressiveness yet. The egg laying is starting to pick-up again , although the two hens that were molting haven't started laying yet. The hens have produced eggs all winter , but some days I only got 1 egg , then 3 or 2 the following days. This past Saturday and Sunday I got 4 eggs each day , yesterday there were 2 and today 3 . Well , in celebration of the extra eggs , think I'll have egg salad for lunch today.
