The new chickens are here


We picked up our new laying flock from our friends at Garnett Family Farm on Friday. We got ten pullets and a cockerel--at least we think he's a cockerel; if it turns out that he's a she, we will trade her back. Hopefully the pullets will start laying next month, because we are averaging an egg a day right now. We may let the old hens hang around or they may end as chicken and dumplings when the weather begins to cool and the leaves change color.

The new flock are Jersey Giants, also known as Black Giants.
