Got our baby chicks this morning. All 35 of them! Can't wait to share pictures/video of the little darlings. Glad we got them now, as I'm predicting our egg layers to stop in the next 6 months. Then we give them away to make room for the new layers we bought today. The tally comes to 20 Dominique females, 1 Dominique male (we'll see if we're successful in breeding/hatching), 5 Delaware females for processing. I was sure they would give us males, but they didn't. Hmmm. Then Mrs. Sandy talked us into 2 Buff Orphingtons (they're so pretty!) and 1 black Jersey Giant. I really wanted some Speckled Sussex hens, but another time perhaps.
Much to do, but first I shall enjoy my soup! Have a lovely Wednesday.
