Ahh my chickens. I have lost many in the past year. One to a stray dog that stopped unexpectedly at our house for a snack! One to a disease which was scary. One died of old age and then the two that were horrifically woken up in the middle of the night by a mean old bear, grabbed from their slumbering bedposts and gobbled up in the woods right by the side of our house!
I have hatched a couple where one had to have a name change from Daffodil to Napoleon! Photo,s to follow once i figure out how to add photo,s from an iPad!
So now i have Dolly the survivor of the bear attack....she was wounded and made it. Napoleon the rooster whose days may be numbered due to his 5.30am cock a doodle doo doo! Coco who is shy and quiet and she should start to lay very soon. Then 4 New Hampshire Reds called, Yoko, Tulip, Spot and Brownie they should start to lay in October.. Meanwhile we are surviving on one egg every other day for a family of five! Not much baking has been done around here lately!
