Spring is almost here and the chicks are in!!! Yay!!!! Today, I went to the Tractor Supply store in Port Orchard, Washington and picked up 8 ISA Brown pullets.
Today I hitched up the trailer and brought home three-and-a-half yards of medium bark mulch.
We got our first egg from the Tetra Tint chickens, at 18 weeks and 3 days! We have two different colors of Tetra Tint chickens - white chickens and red chickens.
I just had to share with you a photo of one of our new hens. I have named her "Skidmark." I'll let you figure that one out ... (click on the title of this post and then on the photo to enlarge).
Picked up our new chicks this morning from The Tractor Supply store in Port Orchard, Washington.
That Rooster was kind enough to stand still so I could take a good profile shot of him this morning. This gives a much clearer view of him than the pic I shot of him roosting in my walnut tree last night.
I thought that for my first post on FwG that the story of my mystery chicken would be a good place to start.
And here is Blackbeard, our scrawny Easter Egger undergoing a full molt. Boy, the girls sure do look awkward and scrawny at this stage!!!
If you raise laying hens, you are likely to encounter a broody hen at some point.
