Back in the Chicken Business


We picked up our new chickens on Thursday. We found a lady that had 4-H chickens that she got the same day we got ours and she wanted to sell some of hers. She also has several different kinds of show chickens. We bought 15 4-H hens and 3 Black and White Birchens (2 roosters and 1 hen) that we hope to incubate some eggs and hatch some chicks. The same chickens that cost .80 a piece at 1 day old cost us $8 a piece at 16 weeks old (after she gave us a deal.) The show chickens were $5 a piece. We caught a raccoon and have had no other problems. We got our first egg this morning so the boys are back in the chicken business.
